Well here is what I did some shirring on. The Claire patern has some shirring on the peasant top and the peasant dress. JayLee found a fat quarter bundle for an ok price at the Damaged or lost in shipping store in town. For some reason she had to have it and I promise I've never seen fabric handled so much. Every time I turned around she had it back out. Right when we got home we had to pick a pattern and then she started making plans for this fabric. We were kind of limited bacause it was just fat quarters but we made it work. What do you think?

I think it is Magic!!
Has anyone ever done any shirring? I havn't until this morning but now I'm in love with it. I've been looking for a good project to try it with for quite some time. Sandi henderson's Portabello Pixie pattern, Claire. There are so many options with this pattern and it gives you a great opportunity to do some shirring. She also has a great tutorial on her website all about shirring but there is plenty of informatino in the pattern to get the job done. My mom met Sandi at Quilt market and I'm pretty jealous. She does some great work.
