This is so neat. It's not easy to find colorful elastic that can complement your sewing project. This one will help so many people make different colored elastic since it so easy and fast. There's so many types of fabric dyes you can use for this just use the best technique you know about or try this one. It's simple and the downside is the amount of water used in rinses.

I was looking for some elastic in pink,purple or blue to make a skirt for my grand daughter and could not find any especially in larger sizes. I never thought to dye my own elastic. This would have saved me so much time running around looking for some turning up empty handed anyway. So simple and fast and you can dye any color you need. Great idea if you can not find any. Anyone else like this?
