Knit non-roll elastic – just waistbands?
I originally posted this under ‘sewing’ but perhaps I’ll get an answer here:
I’m a newbie here, so I’ll introduce myself. My name is Tabitha, and I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 girls. I’ve recently picked up sewing after a 3-4 year break. I made my own nursing/breastfeeding clothes for a while, and now I am making cloth diapers for my baby.
The question I have is about non-roll elastic. Can it only be used for waistbands? Our local fabric store is closing and has some nice liquidation prices. I picked up several packages of Stretchrite non-roll knit elastic in hopes to use it for both the leg and waist casings on my diapers. Will it work okay for leg casings? I do my elastic a few ways. Depending on how I feel at the time, I either leave it free in a casing or I stretch and stitch (securing the ends either way I do it). I’m hoping the non-roll really isn’t strictly for waistbands!
Can someone advise?
