smocking tutorial


My mom used to make smocked dresses for us when we were little girls.  I think there's even a funny story about her writing a note to my aunt and my cousin reading it shocked that her aunt had taken up smoking (smoking/smocking - looks and seems to sound the same when your a kid.)

I remember her having some type of machine to create the smocked material, but I think this handmade version looks fun to try especially for something like pillows or a bag.

I've been wanting to do this on some new pillows for my bedroom. This tutorial is perfect!

I love it! I think it would be darling to make a cute purse with it around the front.
