The stretch stitch is usually indicated by a set of 3 dashes. Here is a picture of it on my machine, it is stitch number 02

Man, you guys (girls) are the best! I can't believe you even put in a pic!!!! I have that stitch on my machine. I've just never used it (like most of the stiches on there). So... cool to know!!!

I have my TOTTS instructions (that I've never printed. BOO!). I have my machine with my stretch stitch. I have my [un]willing 1 yo girl model. I have my 3 yo willing son model. Now I just need some fabric!! Off I go to order...

THANKS A MILLION!

I don't sew and don't want to learn nor do I have a machine or space for one. Does anyone here want to make these for me? I'd buy in bulk for a decent price.

Okay, I have another question on this. The ribbing is sold in 15 inch width & by the inch. How much do you need to buy to make a headband? I know the length would depend on the head but can you get a few of them out of the width? Please pardon my stupidity.
Thanks!!
Beth
