Smock on gingham

Stephanie Hung of The Crafts Dept. ( suggests smocking on gingham for beginners. She says,

The squares in the gingham pattern act as sewing guides so you can make perfectly spaced stitches.  As the thread makes knots in the front, it floats between the squares in the back of the fabric.

    My grandmother died about 20 years ago but always used to make pillows like this. I never thought I would ever see the pattern of how to do it. Thanks, this brings back some great memories…
