I have had FOE (fold over elastic) in my stach for some time now. And was just avoiding it until my daughter asked me to make a pattern, and there was just no way of getting around it. Jalie 2563 view B. So I searched on you tube and found the best method for applying it. It is more professional looking than the zigzag method. It takes a little patience and practice to get it perfect but I am no longer afraid of using it. I hope this video can help someone else like me.
