Shirring is one of the most enjoyable sewing techniques I've learned over the years. There's just something incredibly satisfying about looking at those rows cinching up behind the presser foot and knowing it's going to look awesome when it's finished!
If you are one of the lucky few, your sewing machine will have a magical ability to look at that elastic thread and say "no problem, I've got this" and you are away and shirring without any trouble... but most of us are not so lucky and there is a bit of tweaking needed in order to get that elastic thread to behave itself.
Thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the digital world. When I'm not designing (or, more likely, attempting to keep up with housework or schooling my three rug rats!) you'll probably find me with my nose in a book, escaping for a few precious moments into a world of fiction or learning with single-minded focus about my latest interest. Here, I'd like to share with you some of the things that I'm currently working on and a bit about all the ways I like to keep my creative juices flowing!
Just for Fun...
