For this Types of Elastic Guide craft video you will learn all about the different types of elastic and how they can be used in different projects that you may create. Don't be stuck staring at a wall of elastic for hours trying to figure out which one is the right one! Simply watch this how-to video and learn everything you need to know about sewing with elastic. 
From the blogger: I'll show you the different types of elastic, and some basic tools and principles you need to know when working with them. Elastic is very common, especially in children’s and casual wear. It’s an easy way to finish off a cuff or waistline. If you know the basics it’s really easy to work with. Make sure that when you’re making a pattern don’t only pay attention to the size but also what it’s for. Does it need to be stiff to stand up to heavy fabrics?  Does it need to be soft for pajamas?

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Angel explains the different types of elastics and their uses very well. I appreciate the way that she explains how to apply and sew these stretchy wonders also. This is most certainly a great techniques video to watch. Personally, I would have appreciated someone to explain so well to me many many years ago, while I stood there staring at all those bands many years ago when I was a new sewist. Thank you for making this video.
