OK! After hours upon hours of searching, I have not found anything smaller than this that is as stretchy. I got the new sample today and love it! It is soooo soft and stretchy and much lighter on the head than the satin. Sorry for the not-so-good-pic though-Brynn was all cuddled in her bed and I made her come down to model We got busy after school so I didn't get a chance to do it sooner!

that is adorable. do you know how wide it is? it looks like 1/4". i also searched for hours until my eyes were burning fr 1/8" elastic in colors. all i could find was white and black so i have to assume that the white can be dyed. i also emailed the etsy seller of those headbands to ask about the flower - where she gets them and/or if she would be willing to sell me some. it was really the last resort. she said no no source revealed and wouldn't sell them to me. i'm off to joann to look for 1/8" white elastic and some rit dye. i'll let you know how it goes!

Dressupchest.. I just got a huge order of FOE and could make some for your 4 year old for some pics. Would you do that? What colors do you like? I could make some tiny little silk roses and put them on a band or could actually get off this computer and go shopping for flowers. I am getting ready to get my website so I am going to need pics for product soon.

Okay...been following this thread for a bit now...obviously curiosity has gotten me. I looked at all of the pics and did some research too. I however have not found in bulk the elastic...but the best I can figure is that it is the Super Soft Stretch Elastic in 1/8" width that we are looking for. Now taking that and googling and searching, I have found that Stretchrite has a soft stretch elastic used in making baby clothes where the elastic will be near the skin (i.e., cuffs, etc.). I have found 2 websites that offer prepackaged 4 yd. lengths of 1/8" Stretchrite Soft Elastic:
Joanne's, an obvious choice and their price was $1.59 per package.

www.gehmanscountryfabrics.com is another choice with their price being $.89/package. But it seemed they had a limited number and you can put in your zipcode for a shipping price by ground.

I have not found anywhere would it would lready be dyed and in bulk. So assuming (I hate assuming) there may not be a direct supplier...I would look into buying a package and hand dying with RIT and seeing what takes. I have done some research and it seems that knit elastic is softer than braided.

Now with that said, if you want to go the 1/8" white braided elastic, you can purchase that by the roll from www.ctsusa.com There is no min. order and open to all. The roll is 288 yds at $15.95. Shipping is looking at an additional $10.04 and I do not know about tax.

I hope this helps. Me personally...I'm buying a package and doing some trial and error. If things go well, I might make up several batches of different colors. I'll post pics if things go well.

Take care,
~Meredith
