Fold over elastic is one of my most favorite sewing notions.  It’s softer than standard elastic and it comes in a rainbow of fun colors.  I have a pretty healthy stash of it in my sewing room, and I find myself reaching for it whenever I want to add a punch of color to wallets, journal covers, hair accessories, and more.

Lots of people use fold over elastic for making baby diapers or baby hair accessories – and it’s certainly good for that – but there are sooo many other ways you can use this soft, colorful elastic in your sewing.

You can find fold over elastic at the fabric store, but I prefer to buy my fold over elastic from Etsy sellers, who have a wider selection of colors and offer longer cuts of the elastic.  A couple of sellers with good selection and prices for fold over elastic are:

Couture Craft Supply

Pretty In Pink Supply

Wholesale DeZigns

You can also just go to Etsy.com and search for fold over elastic.  There will be plenty to choose from, I promise!
