Can you buy this at Hancock Fabrics or JoAnn Fabrics? Or do I have to get it online? Is braided elastic the same thing?

Thanks!

Yes, you can. It will probably say StretchRite on the package or spool (by the yard). I get better results by using their cotton elastic, also called bathing suit elastic. I feel it holds up better through the repeated washing in hot water that diapers go through. It springs back after stretching better than braided elastic. Here's a description of it from an online store. http://www.wazoodle.com/cgi-bin/cats...alogno=1029010 Although I buy it from a fabric shop in my town. JoAnn's also carries it. Probably Hancock will too.
