STEP 1: Cut Elastic
Following the instructions for the pattern you are using, cut your elastic to fit the part of the body it is going around. For this example, I am using 1″ elastic for the waistband of a pair of pajama pants. The elastic is cut to fit my natural waist. Be sure to use the elastic type and size for your project as instructed by the pattern’s designer.
