What the heck is fold over elastic?!

Postby babiesgalore+1more » Tue Jan 11, 2011 11:09 pm

This is probably a v.v.dumb question as the clue is prob in the name but what actually is foe? The last time i used fitteds and wraps was nearly 4 yrs ago when i just had bog standard gussetted white wraps...did the job but but not v.pretty! Anyway, i am now getting fitteds and wraps for new bub due april and saw some v.sweet patterned wraps with foe...what is it, how do you use it and is it as reliable as a gussetted wrap? Really want to get some nice wraps for summer when nappies are exposed more!

It elastic with a crease down the middle, use similar to bias tape but it's very stretchy, so you stretch as you stitch to get the elasticstion you need around legs etc, very soft aswell,
Comes in loads of colours and can also have printed designs on it, I loved the stuff abd made making wraps very quick and simple x
You can buy it from www.pocket-bots.com x

how do they wear a wrap with it on though,do you just put it over the nappy or is there some sort of technique to putting it on that will contain the poop?!
