Fold-over: What can Fold-over Elastic be used for?

Fold-over elastic provides a decorative finish to apparels, crafts, hairbands and more. We especially love using fold-over elastic for finishing the edges of mesh fabric for pockets in purses and bags. It is also perfect for finishing a neckline or wristbands on a special outfit or beautifully finishes the edges of diapers or diaper covers to securely fit your special baby.

Hardware: Should I use hardware sets or sets of two?

Sets of two are a product that we introduced in 2018 to make it easier for stores to stock our hardware and also to simplify the assembly process on our side. In doing so, we were able to reduce the price of hardware by about 10% across the board. We therefore generally recommend that you buy the Sets of Two. Save any extra pieces for another project.

Hardware: Will a magnet damage my electronics?

We are glad to see you thinking about the safety of your devices and using our products. Unfortunately, we are in no way experts in this field and we can provide you no guarantee that a magnet will not damage or corrupt data on your electronic devices. Please review your user manuals and/or check with the manufacturer to better understand the specifications for your device. In our patterns for laptop, tablet, and mobile cases enclosures, we almost always use zippers or a hook and loop fastener. This is not so much because we are concerned about the magnet, but instead because we prefer the closure strength provided. We do not want our tablet falling out!

Soft and Stable: Can I substitute Soft and Stable for regular quilt batting?

Annie created Soft and Stable to use as an alternative to batting or other interfacing. She was looking for something that would hold the shape of the bag, giving a professional looking finish without being too stiff or making the bag too heavy.
