Forget tying and re-tying laces over and over again. And add some custom colored style at the same time with elastic shoelaces. Get the look of laces + the ease of a slip-on! Great for kids shoes.
Step 1: Supplies Needed
- Lace up shoes
- Fold Over Elastic (aka FOE). This comes in several widths usually 5/8in and 1 in. I used 1 inch since that's what I had on hand*
- Basic notions (sewing machine, pin, soluble/disappearing marking pen, scissors)
*Depending on the size of the holes, the 5/8 make be easier to use. You can find basic colors of FOE at most sewing stores and tons colors & prints at various online sewing & diaper making shops.
