My experience: As the title says, this was super easy. Mine was not exactly like theirs, but it still turned out great. I was able to use leftover scraps from other projects. My elastic was wider than the tutorial so I didn't have the tapered ends, but I just made the whole thing a little narrower so it wasn't necessary to taper.

Total cost: $0
Final verdict: I will most likely do this again. I can see myself using up scraps this way. And as I was digging through my scrap bag I found lots of fabrics that I wondered how they would hold up to this treatment, rather than the regular cotton blend I used here. Also, totally gift-able. Maybe you will get one for your birthday!
