    Shirring Elastic

    £1.33

    Shirring elastic is used in the bobbin of your sewing machine. It allows you to create a smocked effect in your fabric. When using this elastic, you'll need to slowly wind it onto a bobbin by hand. Be careful not to pull or stretch the thread as you wind it. Then simply pop the bobbin into your machine as usual. Don't use this as the top thread on your machine, it's not necessary - just use your regular thread in the top. Put down the presser foot and (on a scrap piece of fabric!!) begin to sew... then sew another line about half an inch away from the first. Once you've sewn a few test lines of stitches you'll see it pulling together your fabric as it should, thus creating the "smocked" effect.

    £20.83

    10mm wide black elastic (made from cords of rubber), known as ‘cord’ elastic. Good quality with plenty of strength. This elastic is sold on a reel and contains 100 metres. Unfortunately, due to demand, the cost of this is higher than it would ordinarily be as we struggle to maintain and refresh stock.
