Elastic threaders 12Is your elastic 12mm wide you take the middle elastic threader by PRYM, that one fits perfectly. And if your elastic is 15mm wide? Alas, there is no size 15mm but there is a 18mm one, just use that! Are you mainly making childrens clothing you will probably use a lot of elastic and because of the small size it can be a challenge to insert the elastic. These elastic threaders are plastic so they are a little bendy. Handy for small sizes..
Threading elastic or tape
Threading flat elastic in a tunnel is a piece of cake with this threader by Prym. And you can also thread tape, cords and laces with it! Cord can be round or flat and sometimes a bit oval shaped. The oval and flat cords thread well with these threaders. Because round cord is a bit more problematic use the clover elastic threaders instead. The threader left in the picture has “teeth” at the bottom. First slide the ring up, next place the cord in the teeth and lastly slide the ring back down. When threading insert the top first. Because the ring secures the cord your cord will not slip out of the threader. It is secured tightly!
