Use Elastic Hairband for Button Closure

When making coffee cozies, I needed something for a closure that would work with a big button I was using for the design. Since I didn't want to make a large button hole, I discovered the perfect thing for it was a thin elastic hair band. It is economical and I had plenty I wasn't using. The bands also work for small coin purses or other items needing something like a thin cord or elastic. I hand-stitched the elastic in place with just a few stitches using thread to match the band color. For under a dollar I can also replace my stash of those elastic hair bands for other uses. I'm sure this would also work on clothing items, such as sweaters, etc.

Great idea. I too don't care to make button holes and avoid some of my ideas because of it, this opens up a whole lot of creative ideas. Thanks.
