Earlier this week I showed you my Toddler Girls Shirred Waist Skirt Sewing Tutorial using shirring elastic. So today I wanted to share my shirring elastic, which comes in a host of colours...
Shirring elastic is a thin polyester elastic popularly used in smocking and to strengthen cuffs and welts in knitwear. To use it in your sewing machine just manually wrap it around the bobbin being sure not to stretch the elastic as you wind it on to the bobbin.
I am looking forward to trying out the gold shirring elastic on my latest project!
