How to Master Seven Different Sewing Techniques for Elastic Bands?

As a premier manufacturer of elastic bands, Yusen not only excels in production but also pioneers innovative post-processing techniques. Today, we are thrilled to unveil seven unique sewing techniques that set our products apart. These methods not only enhance the functionality of the elastic bands but also significantly boost the comfort of the garments they integrate with. Join us as we explore each technique in detail, revealing how they can transform the quality and appeal of your products.

Mastering diverse sewing techniques is crucial for ensuring the functionality and comfort of your products. Now, let’s explore these seven techniques, each providing unique benefits depending on your project needs.

Method 1: Basic Tube Stitch

This basic method involves sewing the fabric into a tube shape and then folding the edge over to half the width of the elastic band and stitching it down. Ensure a 2 cm gap is left in the middle of the seam to thread the elastic through. This technique is suitable for wider elastic bands. For narrower bands, simply sew several straight lines after folding.

Method 2: Secure Zigzag

First, sew the fabric into a tube, divide the fabric and the elastic band into two equal parts, and secure the middle with a pin. Then, stitch the elastic onto the fabric’s edge using a zigzag stitch, fold the elastic inward, and sew a straight line. This method helps to firmly anchor the elastic band to the fabric, keeping it neat.

Method 3: Hidden Stitch for Thin Elastic

Similar to Method 2, this approach uses a thinner elastic band. Wrap the thin elastic lightly around the bobbin, using the bottom line technique to sew the elastic onto the backside of the fabric. This method makes the stitching more concealed, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the garment.

Method 4: Pin and Flip

The fabric width required should be the width of the elastic band plus 2 cm for seams. First, fold and sew the fabric, then use pins to flip the sewn tube to the right side. Following Method 1, thread the elastic band through and then sew both ends to secure.

Method 5: Double Fabric Layer

This method requires two pieces of fabric. On one piece, mark out the width of the elastic band and sew the two pieces together along these lines. After threading the elastic band through, sew the ends of the fabric to complete.

Method 6: Direct Line on Marked Fabric

First, mark the path for the elastic band on the fabric. Then, find the middle point of both the fabric and the elastic band, dividing the fabric into two equal parts. Remember to align the middle points and sew a straight line directly on the elastic band.

Method 7: Tight Wrap Technique

Mark the path where the elastic band will be sewn on the fabric. Sew a straight line directly on the fabric. The first line is easier to sew; pull the fabric tight when sewing subsequent lines. This method uses a thin elastic band tightly wrapped around the bobbin as the bottom line.

Each of these techniques offers unique advantages and can be tailored to specific types of garments and fabric materials. By mastering these methods, you not only improve your sewing skills but also ensure that your products meet high standards of quality and comfort.


Understanding and applying these seven sewing techniques for elastic bands can significantly enhance the quality and functionality of your clothing items. As you continue to experiment with these methods, you’ll be able to adapt them to various designs and needs, ensuring that your garments stand out in the market for their comfort and durability.

How Can You Tell the Quality of Hook and Loop Fasteners?

As the CEO of YUSEN, I explore the essential qualities that distinguish high-quality hook and loop fasteners from inferior ones. High-quality fasteners are identifiable by their material composition, hook and loop density, and the strength of their adhesion. The article categorizes fasteners into three primary grades: the highest quality being 100% nylon, followed by a nylon-polyester blend, and the lowest quality being all-polyester. Each type has distinct characteristics, such as smoke color and odor during burn tests, which can help in assessing their quality. Material choice not only affects the performance and durability of the fasteners but also their suitability for different environmental conditions. The article emphasizes the importance of conducting simple tests, like the peel and shear test, to evaluate the functionality of these fasteners before purchase. This knowledge is crucial for choosing the right fastener to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the product.
