    I saw that a while back. I have many yards of royal blue satin left from my wedding. I want to try it. It has another name too. For some reason ,I'm thinking Canadian smocking. When I get the boys to bed I will look and see.

    These are beautiful! I learned how to do this years ago in 4H. It was a red apron with white thread, and I still have it!

    Beautiful work. I (also) could not understand most of the words but could follow the visual well.

    When I was pregnant with my second son about 47 years ago, I made several pillows using this method. But I think it was just called smocking. It is fun and turns out so pretty. Thanks for reminding me about this. I may try it again.

    Never knew that was what it was called. I used to do that in high school. My grandma and her friends in her camping club did it. We used 1" gingham print and made sunbonnets. That was over 40 years ago.
