    I’m will try this….I’m making summer shirts for my pregnant daughter. This looks easy. Thank You. I know this will save me a lot of time instead of wrapping the elastic around the bobbin. :-)

    I will have to give this method a try. I tried the shirring method wrapping the elastic thread around the bobbin. I made 3 little girl dresses using it and swore through all three. My top thread kept breaking. (it was using the Martha Stewart tutorial on here from last year). This looks a little more friendly for my machine. Thanks!
