hi all you fabulous sew-crafters,
i am newish to sewing, and am trying to use elastic thread to do ruching... but it doesn't seem to be working for me. it hardly ruches at all. i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong. i am ruching on a thicker fabric, and the instructions said to wind the elastic thread loose on the bobbin. but it hardly ruches at all. i've also read that you might need to change the tension on the thread... but this doesn't seem to have any effect at all.
anyone have any idea what i'm doing wrong, or what i might try differently?
