The wrong side of the strap is the side which will be on the inside. Insert one end of the elastic into the trs starting on the inside. Weave the elastic all the way through the stitches. In and out, like a running stitch. It will gather up as you weave. When you reach the other side, Adjust to fit over the widest part of your hand with some stretch. Sew with needle and thread the two ends together so they are overlapping to make a continuous stretchy band. I made overcast stitches on either side of the elastic to secure them. Set aside.
Stuff the milk cap and slip the top part over the stuffed cap so that the stuffing is toward the crocheted part and the flat part of the cap is on the bottom. Sew the top part to the strap, using an overcast st, working 2stitches on the cushion to one stitch on the strap around the slst RND. You may need to adjust your stitches for best fit. Also work the trs into the stitchs as you work around. Weave all ends in and trim close to work.
