In do, I born know more It is When there last times that I me am bought. Usually, when I have see on THE sidewalk (summer Above all), I THE picked up, THE wash And THE used, A waste of less on there planet!! But Good, with there pandemic And Winter, It is as more complicated of leave has there research rubber bands has hair lost.
 
My girl being rendered with of the hair more long, I me am putting has him TO DO of the quilts with of the elastic in rubber that I had In THE drawer has bulk of there kitchen (we has all This drawer there, huh?). Yes N, I born me Smelt not as there more kind of the moms, Above all that we knows all that That drawn THE hair When we try of remove it. SO, I have "pimped" THE elastic in rubber And It is Perfect For pass of the scraps of fabrics.
I made myself four widths of hair ties. My favorites are the medium and the small, so I made them for you as a PDF pattern. You can download them right here. It is also possible to trace the sizes directly on the fabric, I use a Frixion pencil , because it disappears with the heat of the iron.
 
Here are the measurements:
Jumbo: 60cm x 15cm
Large: 55cm x 12cm
Medium: 50cm x 10cm
Small: 45cm x 8cm
 
**sewing allowances included (1cm)
 
Elastic length: Rubber elastic or 21cm of 0.5cm wide elastic
 
 
Making steps
 
With rubber band (closed)
1- Fold the fabric in half, right sides together, lengthwise and insert the elastic between the two layers.
2- Sew all along at 1cm except the first three and the last three centimeters.
3- Turn right side out, either with your fingers or with a spring pin. Iron.
5- Sew the smaller sides of the rectangle together, right sides together, at 1cm.
5- Close the opening with a seam either by hand or by machine.
 
 
With regular elastic (not closed)
1- Fold the fabric in half, right sides together, lengthwise and sew along the entire length at 1cm except the first three and the last three centimeters.
2- Turn right side out, either with your fingers or with a spring pin. Iron.
3- Sew the smaller sides of the rectangle together, right sides together, at 1cm.
4- Insert the elastic inside using a spring pin.
5- Sew the two elastic ends together, overlapping them by 1.5cm.
6- Close the opening with a seam either by hand or by machine.
 
 
You can find a short video (IGTV) of these two techniques on the workshop's Instagram account.
I had fun on the jumbo, I made a seam at the end to trap the elastic.
