5/16″ Reversible Fold-Over Elastic Binding
Make some space in your sewing collection for our brand new 5/16″ (8 mm) Reversible Fold-Over Elastic Binding in six new colours that are out of this world! The elastic can even be turned inside out for a matte finish! Our customers use our Reversible Fold-Over Elastic Binding as a finishing trim along the top (or bottom) of a bra or to finish the legs or waistline of panties. We have used this Elastic Binding as an elastic-free finish for those who are sensitive to latex elastic. You can use both the shiny and matte side for your sewing projects.
Our 5/16″ (8 mm) Reversible Fold-Over Elastic Binding is made of Nylon and Spandex, not rubber (latex). The 5/16″ (8 mm) Reversible Fold-Over Elastic Binding is a classic, tailored binding that is very easy to apply. The elastic is narrow enough to complement the edge, yet is wide enough to sew on easily. Simply fold it in half along the pre-marked fold and sew along the edge with a small zig-zag (some use 1 x 1 and others use 2 x 2). It can be sewn in one pass or two. We have used a fabric glue stick to hold the Fold-Over Binding on the edge of the fabric while we sew it. It makes sewing much easier! When not folded this elastic is 5/8″ wide.
Our 5/16″ Elastic is available in six beautiful new colours, which are dyed according to the Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors colour chart. Each of our Fold-Over Elastic colours is shown with the corresponding Pantone colour code. If you have the Pantone chart, you may check our colours against it for an accurate colour depiction.
Our Reversible Fold-Over Elastic Binding in 5/16″ is available in 6 beautiful colours called Lunar Lavender. Ultra Voilet, Cosmic Caribbean Blue, Supernova Pink, Solar Flare Red and Meteor Mauve. These new colours are part of our new Galaxy Collection of elastics.
