You sew the elastic about an inch or two apart in the heel of the shoe. It should be cut and measured around your ankle ahead of time so you know it won't be too tight or too loose.H______________________________________________________________________One Elastic Band:1) Fold the back of your pointe shoe down.2) Mark the place where the back of the pointe shoe falls.3) Take your elastic and place it at an angle, right where you marked.4) Stretch the elastic to the other side, where your other marking is.5) Sew the elastic in place with enough "extra" on each side (this will keep the back of the shoe on your heel).Two Elastic Bands (Crisscrossed):1) Place the pointe shoe on your foot.2) About 1-1.5 inches from the heel, sew one end of the band.3) Stretch the elastic across the top of the foot to a place on the shoe a little closer to the toes (about 2-2.5 inches from the heel).4) Sew the end of the elastic there.5) Repeat on the other side, starting at the end on the back and moving it forward.6) It should look like an "X" on the top of your foot.
