Sew all around the circle using a 1cm (3/8″) seam allowance.

3.When you reach the end cut off the bias binding with a bit to spare and fold this extra toward the wrong side and stitch so the folds touch.  Snip thread.

4. Turn the  circle over and flip out the front piece of the bias binding.

5. Fold the bias binding over the raw edge so that the previous line of stitching is covered.  Sew around the whole circle.

6. Thread your elastic around your bias binding casing.

Overlap your elastic and stitch the ends.  then thread it back into the casing and spread the elastic around evenly.

Voilà, they are now all finished.
