Well today I hadn’t planned on making dolls cloths but somehow I started making a skirt for one of my daughters dolls when I had finished I started playing about with shirring elastic something I don’t seem to be able to sew with on my machine. I have been told that electronic machines don’t do shirring well it seems that is correct. I tried all sorts of settings and nothing really worked the nearest I got was when I put my tension all the way up to 9 but even then its not great. Anyway I thought why wastes my efforts so I turned my sample shirring into a top to match the dolls skirt. So here it is.

I have also been trying to find simple projects that my daughter can sew on her Janome sew mini sewing machine and I have started a “simple sewing ideas board” for kids on my Pinterest here simple sewing ideas board
