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.

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.

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 matte side out. 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.

  1. Looks nice, doesn't pill 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2018

    I've made two diaper covers with this FOE, and I have washed them a few times. It doesn't pill the way the 1" tends to (so far!), and it is soft and stretchy. It looks rather tidy!

  2. Thinner than expected 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2016

    I didn't realize I usually order the 1" and when this came I was taken back by how thin it is. It doesn't seem as stretchy as the 1 inch either. I guess I will use it for something else other than diapers.

  3. Great! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2015

    I am very happy with this FOE! I originally purchased Babyville FOE for my fist few cloth diapers and wasn't a big fan. It's smooth and soft with just the right amount of stretch, and easy to work with. After buying this FOE (and other items), I will continue buying all my supplies here!

  4. I will only buy this FOE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2015

    I bought this FOE and then I ran out in the middle of a stack of diapers and got some from a brick and mortar store...mistake! The other stuff snags much more easily and doesn't look near as neat and trim. From now on, I'm only buying this FOE!

  5. looks great and snag-resistant, as advertised! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st May 2015

    Have used this on some covers and pockets and am very happy with how they turned out and washed up. I prewashed first and used a 3-step zigzag to install. No snagging or pilling on the Velcro stuff it gets washed with. 2 thumbs up!

  6. Love! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2015

    I love this FOE! It is so soft. Doesnt pill much and recovers well. It is thin but sturdy. So much better than the thicker stiff stuff i bought.

  7. Plush FOE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2014

    This is my first choice FOE to use for newborn covers. It works nicely applied to gussets as well. A great product!

  8. love it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2014

    Never used FOE before, but this is so much more affordable than the stuff at JoAnn's, and I had no trouble at all using it.

  9. best in quality and price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2014

    Love this high quality foe. The price is great, way cheaper than I can buy locally and it's nonpilling! No complaints. Might take a few more projects than wider 1" to perfect application. Will definitely buy more.

  10. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2014

    I used the 1" on my last projects and it was just fine but pills quite a bit. This 3/4" is WONDERFUL - very little pilling and super easy to work with. I like the more trim appearance although if you're working with more than 2 or 3 thin layers, it may not be wide enough for you. In that case, I would love to see a 1" version of this same product available!
