Day 128 and Gathered


I need much more practice on my sewing machine, but a little experimenting got me this lovely ruffle. Using a zig zag stitch, I sewed over the top of a thin elastic cord while pulling on the elastic. It didn't work at all for me until I used the zipper foot, and even after that I had to do some gathering by hand.

I do enjoy the finished result and I hope that more practice will make me even more fluent with my machine.
