Fold over elastic has many uses, and is very easy to use. This is a stretchy trim with a knitted-in foldline, so that it can be used as a binding and lie nice and flat. The biggest advantage is that it S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-S! Fold-over elastic comes in a few different widths, a rainbow of colors, and in shiny or matte. CraftStylish has a great tutorial on how to use the fold-over elastic.
If you’ve never used fold-over elastic, check out the tutorial from CraftStylish. I get my fold over elastic on eBay – it comes in bulk – like 5 or 10 yard lengths, etc at super cheap prices! I guarantee that you’ll be using fold-over elastic for all your trimmings – from aprons to knit tops to kids clothing and everything else you can find! It’s super easy to use and looks great when finished!
