Cut the elastic to your child’s measurement. Fold the elastic so that the ends meet and overlap. Pin in place. Use a needle and thread or a sewing machine to secure the elastic loop. To determine the length of the elastic, measure your child’s waist. Subtract 4 inches then cut to that size. (For example, my child's waist is 21 inches, minus 4 equals a 17-inch piece of elastic.) The elastic will stretch as you are putting the fabric scraps around it. For the best fit, always measure the child. But just in case you do not have that option, here is a list of the average waist size for a child’s age: 12 to 18 months = 15 1/2”; 2T = 16”; 3T = 16 1/2”; 4T = 17”; 5T = 17 1/2”, 6T = 18”; 7 yrs. = 18 1/2”, 8 yrs. = 19”. Add one inch to the elastic for each additional year up until the teen years.
