Hi!  I have started making training pants for my daughter and they are made with double fold elastic.  I never used it when making her diapers, and was looking forward to it.  Unfortunately, the elastic I ordered was very cheap (quality wise, not price), and it didn't gather the material enough.  When I stretched it, the spaces in it were so big I could see clearly through it!  Can any of you recommend a place on-line that you've gotten good double fold elastic from?  I don't want to buy more without knowing it's good quality.  Thanks!

You didn't mention where you got yours...

But I bought some from Sewzannes.com and didn't have that problem.  I love it.

Thanks!  I was deciding between Sewzannes and Very Baby, and Very Baby had the fabric I wanted so that's where I got all my supplies.  I was surprised at the elastic they sent me, because I had the impression that they would have good quality supplies.  The fabric was good, though.  I'll try Sewzanne's for the elastic this time.
