I am not sure if I can make this sound right. When you tie the knots on the elastic you know how you can make the tulle that sits on the elastic thick or narrow depending on how you gather the tulle? What about if you did one layer with tulle not gathered at the knot (so that it covers like a half inch to an inch of the elastic) and then do another layer between those, still keeping the tulle spread out above the knot.
I hope that make some kind of sense lol. You will use less tulle and still have that double layer effect.
There is a grave difference between supporting the war effort and those in uniform. If you do not stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.
Also, it has been 147+ days since I have seen my DH, so don't expect me to be all rainbows and sunshine when you are being stupid. Oh, let us not forget the glitter.
