    Cut a piece of fabric the length of the tube you sewed, and just over twice the with of piece of elastic you will use (I use 1"). Cut the elastic just longer then the length of your waist and sew the edges to make a circle. Line up the elastic with the edge of your piece of fabric and zig-zag stich the edge of your elastic to your fabric. YOU WILL HAVE TO MAKE FOLDS AND SEW OVER THOSE FOLDS TO GET IT TO FIT.
