See this elastic in the picture above? It's cut off from some old underwear! Yup. In my opinion, it's a wonderful way to recycle. All underwear are different, some have super stretchy pretty elastic, some thick (like my husbands), some lacy, some thin. Depending on what you are looking for in your elastic, any of it will work. And please don't tell me that your underwear doesn't have elastic....It does! Otherwise they would be around your ankles right now! I've been stealing elastic from my husbands under garments for a while now. I use it in making skirts for my girls!
So basically, I measured my leg with the elastic, making sure it would fit comfortably and then I stretched/pulled it as much as I possibly could as I sewed on the lace (don't stretch the lace, just feed it through). Then I attached the two ends and that's basically it!!
