Here are some uses:

  • In small circles, in place of bottoms, down the fronts of shirts and blouses and for waistband closures.
  • Instead of buttons, to attach overall straps to overall bibs.
  • Attached to mittens, to stick them together for storage.
  • On overall straps in the back, to keep them from slipping down a child’s arms.
  • On washcloths, to make easy-to-change diapers for your child’s baby doll.
  • To make a “custom” T-shirt, attaching tiny stuffed animals or other little toys that  your child can take on and off.
