Well recently all the craft blogs have been bombared with shirring (sewing with elastic thread) and I was itching to try it. When a friend called from JoAnns and said “do you need anything while I’m here” I jumped on that – YES, I HAVE to have ELASTIC thread!! (and I just love how sewing supplies get delivered by friends, without me even having to leave the house – awesome!) Now for a project to test out shirring. I thought it would give some body/shape to a pillowcase dress and I thought I was a genius for designing this look. Then yesterday I saw my same dress design – at Walmart. Guess I’m not as unique as I thought – oh well.
