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.) Keep in mind that 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 1” to the elastic for each additional year up until the teen years.
