Let’s Get Sewing!
- Iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of the main (outer) fabric.
- Flip the same piece over so it is right side up.
- Fold the elastic in half and overlap the ends.
- Pin the elastic at the center of one short end with the raw ends extending 1/2″ past the fabric.
- Sew back and forth over the elastic several times to secure it in place.
- Place the other piece of fabric on top with the right sides together.
- Pin along both long sides and the end with the elastic.
- Sew around the pinned sides with a 1/4″ seam allowance.
- Turn it right side out by pulling it through the open end.
- Fold the fabric of the open end in and pin it together.
- Topstitch around the perimeter with a 1/4″ seam allowance closing the open end.
- Measure 2″ in from the end opposite the elastic, center your button, and sew it on.
