Step One: Prepare The Shoe

  1. Choose a shoe that will be used for elastic sewing. Pointe shoes are a good choice for this.

    2. Locate the elastic on the shoe. It is usually in a strip near the toes or on the side.

    3. Cut the elastic strip to the desired length.

    4. Sew the elastic strip onto the shoe near the toe or side.

    5. Sew the end of the elastic strip to the top of the shoe, so that it is hidden.

Step Two: Cut The Elastic

For most people, cutting elastic is probably the least fun part of sewing on pointe shoes. It’s tedious, tiring, and can be downright frustrating. However, it’s something you need to do in order to get the elastic snugly fitted around the width of your foot.

Start by measuring the circumference of your foot. This can be done by holding the foot up next to your face and measuring around the widest part of the foot. Write this number down.

Next, measure the width of the elastic. This can be done by holding the elastic close to one of the shoe’s Velcro straps and measuring the distance between the two marks. Write this number down.

Now that you have the circumference and the width of the elastic, you can start cutting the elastic.

To cut the elastic, use a pair of scissors. Make sure the blade is sharp and trim the elastic around the circumference of your foot. Be sure to keep the elastic as close to the Velcro strap as possible.

Next, trim the elastic to the correct width. To do this, measure the distance between the two marks you made when measuring the width. Write this number down.

Next, cut the elastic to this width. Make sure that the elastic is still as close to the Velcro strap as possible.

Finally, tie the elastic around the Velcro strap. Make sure that the ends of the elastic are even and that the elastic is tight

Step Three: Sew The Elastic On

First, measure the circumference of your elastic. This is the widest part of the elastic. You will also need to measure the length of the elastic. This is the longest part of the elastic.

Next, cut the elastic to the desired length. Make sure to cut the elastic on the bias. This means that the length of the elastic will be slightly longer than the circumference of your shoe.

Next, sew the elastic to the shoe. Thread the elastic through the eye of the needle and then sew the elastic to the shoe. Make sure to start and end the sewing at the same point so that the elastic is even.

Finally, trim the excess elastic. You can do this by either cutting the elastic with a seam ripper or by snipping it with a pair of scissors.

Step Four: Check The Fit

Once your shoes are complete, it is time to check the fit. Push your feet into the shoes, so the elastic stretches around your toes. If the elastic feels too tight, the shoes are too small; if the elastic feels too loose, the shoes are too large.

Final Thoughts

If you are looking to sew elastic on pointe shoes, here is a detailed professional, witty and clever explanation of how to do it.

First, measure the circumference of the elastic around the foot. This can be done by wrapping the elastic around the foot and measuring the distance around the foot. If you do not have a measuring tape, you can use a approximation method by wrapping the elastic around your foot several times and then measuring the distance between each wrap. Next, cut the elastic to the desired length.

Now, it is time to sew the elastic on the pointe shoe. You will need to first make a “bunny ear” by folding the elastic in half. Make sure that the folded end is facing the inside of the shoe.

Next, starting at the folded end of the elastic, sew it on the inside of the shoe. Be sure to go around the entire circumference of the elastic. Next, take the other end of the elastic and sew it on the outside of the shoe. Be sure to go around the entire circumference of the elastic.

Now, test the elastic to make sure that it is sewn on correctly. If you need to make any adjustments, be sure to do so now.

Finally, put on the pointe shoe and enjoy your new elastic-sewn pointe shoes!
