    Elastic Wizard

    I got this at an estate sale for $2.00 and finally tried it out and it works great. It takes some adjusting to get just the right amount of stretch, but, that isn't hard to do. I used it on some doll pants. I am always up for another gizmo.

    I have not heard of this, but then I no longer sew clothing.

    I love the "elasticicator" (yes, that is really what it is called!) on my Bernina serger. I did 6 crib sheets for my granddaughters plus lots of cot sheets for a local charity with that! I tried the one for a Brother serger, but it just didn't work the same at all. Let us know how this one works!

    This one works pretty well. I just did it the first time to see and I think if I want to do something more precision I could. Very happy with my $2 expenditure!

    I'm picking up a foot for my Viking this week that does the same thing. I'm hoping it makes dealing with elastic tape easier.

    Gosh! I bought one of those Elastic Wizards some time ago. I am one of those people who has to buy every new gadget that comes out, but sometimes I don't put them to use. The Elastic Wizard is one of them. Maybe your post will get me on the ball to try it. Ha Ha

    I have one of those somewhere, never used it. I've probably had it for about 15 years!
