Depending on your elastic's thickness and how much fabric you are guiding into the elastic, I would use a standard needle (12) with a stretch stitch on my machine. Kate

What type of needle is suitable for a basic sewing project?

I assume that you are speaking of a sewing machine needle size. Sewing with cotton etc., you can use the universal 10/70 for most projects. Remember to change the needle often for best results. ADDITIONAL ANSWER: Needles, thread and fabric are project specific. If you are using a light weight fabric a 70/10 Universal needle should work nicely. However, if you're sewing with denim then you would need a "denim needle" or a universal 90/14 to a 100/16. Medium weight fabrics do well with the Universal 80/12 needle and standard sewing thread you can find in any fabric store. If you are sewing on a stretchy fabric then you need needles designed to slide through the fabric without tearing. And, here again, the size of the needle depends on the weight of the stretchy fabric. If you are sewing on leather, you'll need a leather needle.

How to Use Sewing Machines?

If you can figure out how to use a sewing machine for a basic stitching that involves a straight shot, you will be able to figure out how to perform more complicated stitching techniques.You can start by learning more about your sewing machine. You can do this by reading the owner's manual. Your sewing machine owner's manual can help you learn more about different sewing machine parts. You can also learn more about what your sewing machine can actually do. When you are ready to use a sewing machine, you need to raise the needle to its highest position. You can do this by turning your sewing machine's hand wheel toward you. The hand wheel can be found at the right of the sewing machine. Make sure that the needle that you are using is the right type of needle for the type of fabric that you are sewing.Once you are sure that you are using the correct needle, you can raise the presser foot and thread the sewing machine. Threading the sewing machine involves pulling the top and the bottom threads through the back and the right of the sewing machine. Place the layers of fabric that you want to use underneath and to the left of the presser foot that you have raised. Make sure that you position the fabric. The fabric should be positioned in such a way that the distance between the needle and the fabric edges do not go over your needed seam allowance. Once the fabric has been positioned correctly, you can lower the presser foot onto the fabric. Move the sewing machine hand wheel. Continue moving the wheel until the needle goes through the fabric. You can now begin sewing with your sewing machine.Start stitching by pressing on the sewing machine's foot pedal. Guide the fabric as the sewing machine pulls the fabric towards the back of the machine. Make sure that you guide the fabric gently. You do not want to rip the fabric as you are stitching. When you have finished with the fabric, you can take your foot off the foot pedal. You also need to raise the needle to its highest position. Remember that this is done by pulling the hand wheel towards you. Raise the presser foot so that you can pull the fabric out. You should also remember that you need to cut the thread in order to release the fabric.
