Tip for Elastic for button loops or purse closures

The next time you buy a pair of shoes at walmart or any other discount store that sells them elasticized together with that nice, long round elastic cord - save it. It makes the best button loops -- and it is much more stretchy than the package you buy.

Or next time you're making a purse, sew a loop of elastic on one side of the purse when you close up that last seam across the top...and a decorative button on the other side...and you have an instant purse closure...Some people also use hair elastics for this purpose...I'm cheap, and it's free!
