Fold over elastic questions

Postby knees_on » Thu Jul 22, 2010 5:09 pm

I've got a couple of questions if there are any well-seasoned nappy-makers who can answer them fort me.

First - I know you are supposed to use matt FOE. Just wondered what problem satin finsh FOE presents?

Second - What width is best to use? I keep seeing 1" FOE but this seems really wide. It's not supposed to be folded over again on each side is it? That seems really fiddly.

Third - Gah! Can't remember. Pregnancy brain still not cured!

Fourth - What the best way and place to finish off neatly?

TIA

:) :sewing: :)

ETA: Just remembered no.3! I've seen FOE stitched on with straight stitch on some of my wraps but tutes say zig zag. Does straight stitch work ok? :)
