Speaking the really fun part.. I just finished a projct made specifically to facilitate summer funtimes: the Made Beach Towel Dress. The whole concept here is that if you're at the pool with your kids chances are you don't have hands free to hold on to your own towel. So you end up drip drying or freezing because you're taking care of them and not yourself. TRUTH. This solves that problem by .... wait for it.... adding straps to your towel. Such a simple solution and yet... .GENIUS!
the Made blog (her patterns are on sale right now! I"m so tempted to buy all of them...) I used a towel I purchased on clearance at Target. Then I sewed rows of elastic thread in straight lines across the top. I did 22 rows which made the shirring stop at the bottom of my boobs.
The keys to elastic thread for me seem to be winding it onto the lower bobbin pretty loosely, using a larger stitch length than I usually would. And also this:
