One of the keys to working with elastic thread is hand winding the bobbin. Be sure to do this before you start hand winding a bobbin otherwise the thread will keep unraveling.
Next, start hand winding the bobbin. Be sure to go back and forth across the bobbin in order to get an even amount of elastic thread.
Backstitch at the beginning and the end of each row. Stitch lenghts can vary from 2,5 mm et 4 mm, depending on your choice of fabric.
