Chocolate Fold Over Elastic Binding FOE 3/4 Inch
Fold Over Elastic for Binding Edges in Chocolate Quantity = number of yards.
90% nylon 10% spandex. Imported.
Width 3/4" wide.
Soft and stretchy elastic binding. This special Fold Over Elastic was developed by Diaper Sewing Supplies to resist snagging and pilling. Plus, it has the thin bound-edge look of popular diaper brands. Easy to apply and give a quaility finished look.
Thicker than 3/4" in Matte FOE; thinner than 1 inch plush FOE.
Latex-free. CPSIA certified lead free.
Ideal for newborn cover edge binding, and leg gussets on all sizes of covers. Uses include: diaper covers, trainers, training pants, swim diapers, blanket binding, underwear, headbands, and more.
The Binding FOE shrinks about 5%. If you need it to lie flat (for instance on the curved wings of a diaper cover), then pre-wash, otherwise, no pre-washing should be needed. Sew with matte side out (back side is slightly shiny). Use a ball point or knits needle. Sew with a zigzag or 3-step zigzag stitch. Stretch the elastic as you sew to the amount that you want the edge gathered. Ease the elastic around curves that you want to lie flat (such as the wings on a diaper cover).
How much FOE do I need?
For a small diaper cover 1.5 yards, a medium 1.75 yards, a large or one size 2 yards.
Machine wash and dry.
What a great product!

It was easy to sew and handle. Looks good on the finished item.
I would love to have more colours in this type of FOE. My intention is to purchase more in larger quantities in more colours when they become available.
Very milky chocolate, not dark or semi sweet...

Not the color I expected. Looks like hot chocolate with more milk than chocolate. Works fine, but my niece's diapers would be cuter with actual chocolate-colored FOE. My fault for assuming chocolate was chocolate...
Elastic is cut to purchaser's length and is not returnable, except in the case of store error.
