Step 4: Stitching Elastic

With right sides of the ends facing pin elastic open.  Stitch together & backstitch over a few times for strength and then trim close to stitching.  Pull elastic to fold over the seam and evenly adjust laces.  Now they're ready to wear!
<p>I've made some DIY as well but didn't last long for my rambunctious boys. If you don't want to DIY, these are an option. They tie and have a normal bow so that kids can practice on their own time, but these ended up being my husband's favorite.</p><p>http://www.getstretchlace.com</p>
Great idea!<br> <br> I always struggled with my own laces and then as my boys got older their laces became a nightmare, too. I finally had enough and came up with elastic laces that never came untied and that were adjustable. I wanted the look of laces + the ease of a slip-on! Let me know what you think.<br> <br> They're called Synch Bands (pronounced &quot;cinch&quot;).<br> <br> <a href="http://synchbands.com" rel="nofollow">http://synchbands.com </a><br> <br> Cheers,<br> Eddie :)
