I made a few of these last week. I got some light weight flannel real cheap (2.50/YARD) and the prints were really cute. They are double sided so you can have two different patterns and a put a bit of cotton batten in them for extra protection.  I doubled up the buttons and ended up using a hair elastic as I didn't have anything else.

I'm curious as to how you attached the elastic, and if it is poking though one layer what you did to keep it from fraying?

I just brought it up from the back through all three layers, took it back down about 1/8" next to where it came up, and knotted the two ends on the back of the piece. I tried the cuffs on a cup to get the loop sizing right, and if you don't knot it too tightly at first you can adjust until you get it perfect. I don't think it will fray much, but it hasn't been tested yet. Smiley I'd imagine you could put some fray check on the ends?
