I thought shirring would be easy! After reading Heather Ross's book, Weekend Sewing (Which I Love!) and seeing her video clip with Martha Stewart. I thought I could instantly make these adorable dresses for my girls but I couldn't. Shirring was my kryptonite!
I have researched, tested and found a solution and I want to share it with you!
Especially if you have a Brother Machine with a drop in bobbin.
Look away if Shirring with elastic thread is easy for you!
Ok, so if you have a Brother Machine raise your hand! Me to:)! I love it, I can embroider, quilt and sewing over any surface (Sometimes my own fingers) but when I shirred no luck.
Then I found out that I am not alone!
Sew Mama Sew had a forum on it and that is where I found the answer!
The only tip I did not use is adjust the bobbin casing. I tried it first without adjusting the painted screw on the bobbin casing and it worked!
Thank you Amber for sharing your shirring tutorial on Creative Heart!
