Braided, knit and woven elastics should be mainstays in your basket of sewing supplies. Why? Because they're an integral part of many basic - and fun - sewing projects. Waistbands for cute kids' skirts or pants call for elastic - and so do fun fabric headbands. Specialty elastics include cords for beading and buttonhole loops, and clear elastic that's ideal for constructing or repairing swimwear and athletic wear. Dritz elastics provide utility and function across a wide range of DIY garments and accessories.
Make sure you've got some in your sewing basket.
