Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Large pieces of elastic

I'm making a skirt using DH's old shirts and want to make it into a maternity skirt with two bits of elastic at the front (rather than a maternity waistband). I'm really struggling to find elastic that's wider than the usual rolls - does anyone know where I could find it?

If you can't find any, shirring with elastic thread is really easy and you can make the band as wide as you like: ... hread.html
