Who is this project for? Women What advice would you give someone starting this project? Elastic can be a tricky this to tie properly. Make sure that your knots are strong and that you tuck the knots securely under the beading to reduce stress on the knot itself. Also when choosing your elastic, make sure you're using the strongest for the job, but also one that you'll be able to tie and tuck under a bead successfully. Some may not fit under the beading once tied.
