  1. Hi Megann, this is a great instruction. Thank you. One question please: can you tell me, who plays the music in your video? Greetings rom munich.

  2. Hello, in the video, at the 1:53 mark, you lower the knife before folding and sewing the sides. What if your serger is an older model (1986) and cannot do this?

    1. No worries if you cannot lower the knife! Sew the seam the same way, just be sure to trim off as little as possible. If you trim away too much, the elastic will not fit through the casing you are creating.

  3. To make these even faster I cut lining and top fabric 6″ by WOF. I serge both long ends, turn the tube right side out, press, top stitch long edges and THEN cut into 10″ segments. I marked the back of my Susan Cleveland metal Prairie Pointer pressing tool with 3/4 inch and use that to press over the short ends.

  4. Thank you for the great quick pattern! I would appreciate measurements for a 2 year old, 4 year old, 7 year old and 10 year old. Thank you for your help.
