Buttonhole Elastic Alteration for Skinny Kids

My #1 Grandson, Cole is just SO teeny! His waist is about a 3T – but he’s getting pretty tall – so we buy Size 4 – but then the pants fall off of him. So – it’s BUTTONHOLE ELASTIC to the rescue.
I was reminded of this …

1. When the pants I just bought him were falling off and he was walking with his legs all wide apart-trying to keep them from falling off…

2. I just got an order for 15 yards of Buttonhole Elastic. Bet the customer is a Mom or Granny with the same issues as described above. Find Buttonhole Elastic by just using the SEARCH tool in the upper left hand corner…that tool is AMAZING – at my site: Londa’s Creative Threads. Have it on my order again – as i ALWAYS sell this cool stuff. ( A bunch of loose ends are up in my End of Season Clearance Department as well…)

Sew anyway – I was going to write a tutorial about how to do it – and since I’m squeezed for time, I thought I’d google for it – and found this great link – to a pretty cool blog from a gal homeschooling her kids, and living frugally in Ca.

Sew- her directions are just pretty darned great – so, try it!
