A Craftastic Monday & Giveaway!


Today's party kick's off a week long celebration of Fold-Over-Elastic (FOE) & all it's fabulous uses.  What is FOE?  An amazing cross between ultra soft elastic and bias tape.  Great for edges of necklines, hems, cloth diapers & underwear.  But it's uses don't quit there - headbands, necklaces, ruffles, decorative trims and more.

Not only does it make a soft finish, it can also add stretch, shaping & gathers without the need for baste stitching, special presser feet or extra elastic.  This little lady's wearing hers in 3 different ways & I'll be showing you how to do them all!

We're celebrating this week's featured item with a fabulous giveaway sponsored by:


This online shop is THE place for all your fold-over-elastic needs.  They offer loads of gorgeous colors, finishes & widths all by the yard.


There are even adorable prints & custom dyed-to-match thread available to add even more style to your projects.



FOE Your Diaper is giving away a $50 gift certificate to its shop to go on the ultimate FOE shopping spree!

    and also the black and celery solids.

    I'm really glad I found this link today! I came over because of one pretty thing, then saw the giveaway link. I finally found some PUL in a chain store nearby, and will probably just buy it online next time... the chain store just didn't have much of a selection.

    I'm going to be making baby diapers soon for my little bun that's due in February.
