Roll the elastic thread to the bobbin with your hands, stretch out the thread while you do it, so that you get stretched thread on your bobbin. How much the fabric will purse later, depends on how much you stretch it now.

    Thank you so much! For some reason I thought you WEREN’T suppose to stretch while winding the bobbin.
