I used fabric from skirt. I promise I’m not linking to my other posts to make you look at them. I just like to show you that fabric can do lots of different things. If you get a couple yards and you used some, there’s always something you can do with the leftovers. (I’m terrible and save all my scraps. It’s so hard for me to throw fabric away that I might be able to use it for something else.) This fabric makes me think of Victorian times.
Sew a gathering stitch. This is a straight stitch at 5 length.
Sew three gathering stitches. One on each side and one down the middle.
Pull either the top thread or the bottom thread.
See how the fabric gathers? The fabric will gather and shift around until it is sewn to something that is not gathered.
Gather all three stitches and pin the three strips to the tree gathered stitchings.
