Default FOE headband with a sewing machine

It seems like all the headband tutorials are for gluing or hand sewing. But I wanted to use a sewing machine to machine my headbands. I've had some luck, but my sewing machine keeps snagging the elastic, sucking it in, and catching the thread and just all around giving me a headache!

Is there a thread setting I should be using? Like a looser stitch or tighter stitch? I'd appreciate any help!

Default Re: FOE headband with a sewing machine

i have had this problem some too. check your tension and start sewing about 1/4" into the foe, go forward then backwards before you hit the edge and then forward all the way to the edge. have to sew this a couple of times or it wont hold. hope that helps.
