As promised, here is my "sewing elastic - casing" tutorial

This is just how I do it, there are other ways, but me being a beginner myself this is what I find easy. Enjoy!

Now if only I could sew straighter...

Makes me want to try this again. My problem is never getting the legs the same..but this way should work. I'd tried sewing the elastic on instead of a casing.

thanks for this!

Nice job mama! Thanks for this tutorial!

may I suggest one thing - if you start sewing on the other wing than the one you started on in the picture then you won't have to stop and break your thread to leave a back opening because you'll be starting on one side of the opening and ending on the other - make sense?

Re: As promised, here is my "sewing elastic - casing" tutorial

duh... that totally makes sense!! thanks for that!

and tinab: as you can see from my sewing, my sewing isn't perfect either, LOL! I figure if it fits the baby and does what it's designed to do, then nobody but me will notice it's not totally perfect
