Sewing The Back Seam

With right sides together, bring the two short ends of your rectangle together, making sure that top and bottom edges are even with each other. Pin the ends together.

Sew the short ends together, sewing 1/4" (6mm) from the edge.

NOTE: some machines will have some difficulty sewing over the thickness of the elastic. If yours does, please refer to your manual for the correct techniques. (I also have some other suggestions in the notes at the end of the project.)
