I just hot glued all my petals together so I knew they wouldn't come apart, then I hot glued it on the elastic as like a "stay put for the moment". Then I cut out a cirlce of the felt, put hot glue ALL over it and just slapped it on the bottom of the flower. It ends up covering the sewn part of the elastic as well as the bottom of the flower. It looks nice and clean and since its all fabric like I wasn't worried about using hot glue because I know its strong on that.
I did exactly the same thing. I had some felt from the bolts, but used the sheets instead and they still looked good.

ahhh lol looks like a trip to JA's is in order this week lol. Plus I think the felt would make it a bit more comfy for the lil' ones wearing the bands kwim? Gosh you girls are smarties. Thanks for sharing your ideas and info.

What type of elastic is it that dyes the best (i.e. the percentage of elastic/acetate, etc.)? I am in Canada and will have to find elastic at the fabric store here and I am sure that the brand names will be different. Thanks!

I'll have to check when I get home tonight. I believe the Dritz said 55% polyester and I think the rest was rubber. I looked online and I think the stretch rite is 70% polyester and 30% rubber. That's why I thought the Dritz would dye better because the polyester doesn't take as well as cotton, etc. or will dye a lot lighter, but I didn't have any problems with the stretch rite in that pink-I can try to post a picture of the difference-the dritz is such a pale pink it almost looks white and the stretch rite is like a bright french pink color

So, I'm kicking myself for throwing away my package. But, from searching it looks like what I used was 70% polyester and 30% was spandex. I used Singer 1/4" not braided. It dyed very well.

Here are mine

I got my elastic online and I am going to write to them to see if she carries any other colors and would consider discounting or wholesaling. It was very cheap and shipped fast and i really like it but she only carries three colors in her 1/8 elastic.

I made a new one and I love it even more than the first. I apologize because I know the pic is going to be huge! But just click on my link if you can't really see it well (and for more pics).

I found them in any color that we could have, however 10,000 yards per color might be a tad much
