Buttonhole Elastic

Buttonhole elastic is a wonderful product. I don’t think I could do without it.

Buttonhole elastic can be used in waistbands of maternity clothing – is easy to expand the waistline as needed. 

For me, I use a LOT of it for my grandchildren’s clothing.  We have quadruplet grandbabies – 2 1/2 years old.  The little boys are sooooo small around the waist that sometimes size 18 month size elastic waist pants slide down over the hips.  Well, I KNOW they’re gonna catch up with their big brother soon, so we use a lot of buttonhole elastic in their waist bands.  It is so easy to expand those waist bands with the buttonhole elastic, while the lengths are still fine.

Another use for buttonhole elastic is if you’re making fitted sheets, or repairing fitted sheets, sew buttonhole elastic around the curved areas.  The “buttonhole” part lets it fold easily to be attached to the sheets, and is perfect when putting the sheets back on the bed.

I’m sure there are many other uses for this product – once you’ve tried it, you won’t want to be without it.

The buttonhole elastic is available on ebay and I’m sure JoAnns probably carries it as well.
