I'm such a wuss.

I have owned elastic thread for nearly two years now...and I have only just used it. Everyone said it was so easy. Just wind the bobbin, sew and iron. Voila! But I remained unsure and a little scared that I would totally mess it up. But finally yesterday, I decided to take it on. I have been wanting to make some simple pillowcase dresses for Goose for a long time now, so this was the perfect opportunity.
 This little dress was screaming at me to make a matching headband, so I did:) And goose loves it. Even better.
And can I just say, if you, by some strange chance, have not yet tried elastic thread, just do it. it really is so easy. Just keep in mind that this dress used one whole spool, so plan wisely.

Congratulations! I just recently tried elastic thread too. I'm glad I did. I love the picture of Goose with her palms on her sweet face. She looks as if she got up from making mud-pies to pose for you! *giggle* Thanks for sharing. Happy Sewing! :o)

Thanks! And yes, I almost brushed the dirt off of her first, but then, this is so her, that it was be silly if she didn't have dirt on her somewhere. so...unnatural:)

I've been nervous about trying elastic thread too, but you may have just convinced me. Thanks for the reassurance!

LOVE the dress, and LOVE elastic thread. It's addicting, right??? While I make one of these dresses, I just keep thinking of all the others my nieces NEED as well... hahaha!
