Ok...I planned on making one of these for my daughter's b-day coming up...but now I'm going to have to come up with a backup plan. I found out the directions on Martha Stewart are for an 18 month old. My dd will be 4, so hers would require a lot more fabric. I have never shirred before, so I tried with tulle. I was pretty easy, but my darn top thread kept breaking. I used the method w/ the elastic thread on the bobbin...is this right? And everyone is saying the nylon chiffon must be purchased online. Bummer. There must be an easier and cheaper way!!!
