Lastin Clear Elastic 3/8" Quantity = number of yards
Polyurethane. Imported. 3/8 inches | 10 mm wide.
The original, branded product made by Mobilon of Japan. The correct Lastin for cloth diaper sewing. Will not break like other clear elastics. We also carry 1/4" Lastin when you need a more gentle stretch.
Very durable and long-lasting. Does not break when nicked. Not affected by chlorine - great for swim diapers! Lightly textured surface makes it easy to grip and sew. Clear to match any color. Latex-free.
Make sure you have a fresh needle with no burrs. Sew Lastin along the entire length of the elastic, stretching the elastic as you sew it in place. Use a 3-step zigzig stitch. Regular zigzag stitch will work but make sure needle goes through elastic and not just across it. With nimble fingers you can also insert into a serged seam as you sew. For a gentle gather, just start sewing and stretch as you go. For a firm gather, or when sewing thick fabrics, pre-stretch the elastic several times, then sew in and stretch as you go. Pre-stretching allows you to pull the elastic out farther, resulting in a tighter gather.

This stuff is amazing, I've been dealing with Lastin for several years, and have had breakage issues several times. I don't know what's different about this stuff but it's much stronger and denser than lastin I've purchased previously, the needle holes don't stretch, it doesn't break, it's great!
