STEP 2: Cut out the circle
Take some scissors and cut out the outline you have drawn around the container you just traced around.

STEP 3: Line the edge with elastic
Take a piece of 1/4″ elastic and line the edge of your plastic circle you cut out in step 2 keeping it taut as you go along.

STEP 4: Trim the edges
Cut away any excess elastic once you have wrapped the elastic the entire way around the circle.

STEP 5: Sew on the elastic
Now it is time to sew the elastic to the edge of the plastic circle. Normally, I would use a sewing machine to whip through this really quickly, but I thought I would share a hand-sewing method so that anyone can join in, machine or no machine! First, start by cutting a long piece of thread and tying a knot on one end. Then once it has been fed through the elastic and plastic you will stitch a diagonal line.

Once you have placed one diagonal stitch you will back track and feed the needle back through about 1/8″ behind the stitch you just made and then feed it diagonally once again.
