Trim on covers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got some PUL and I'm going to make some covers. What do you use for the trim, Bias Tape? What kind? where do you get it?

Fold Over Elastic and I buy it online. Sewzannes.com sells it, as do many different co-ops and online retailers which sell diapering fabrics. IME the 1" plush FOE works best with diapers.

I bought 50 yards of fold-over elastic on eBay for really cheap!

You can also apply regular elastic (right along the edges between the elastic points on your pattern--you can zig-zag it on to the edge or sew it down the middle) then bind the cover with strips of PUL (cut 1" strips)--just sew all the strips into one long strip long enough to go around your cover; remember to stretch elastic as you sew the PUL over it. DO NOT use bias tape--it will wick horribly!!!! HTH

I buy my foe from this mama: kidsinthegarden.com

Really nice to work with.
