Okay. So I have this 2inch elastic I want to sew to the bottom of a tee shirt to make a skirt. Please tell me if I'm thinking of how to do this right. Stretch the elastic but not the fabric. Right?

Oh, and how do I tell if any one my needles are ball point?

Craft till it hurts.

so I looked. All I have is ONE (clearly labled) ball point needle (out something like thirty) but it says for light wieght stuff anf I think my elastic and fabric are too heavy for the needle. Would it be so super terrible to use a regular needle? I really don't wanna go to the craft store tonight but I wanna make this skirt....

no it wouldn't be awful to use a regular needle. And yes stretch the elastic, not the t shirt.
