Using your ruler, mark your fabric every 2 inches, so that you can create a straight fold into your fabric
Iron these folds flat

Once you've iron these folds, you'll want to sew them down. Measure 3/4" from the edge and mark with pencil or pin.

Repeat these steps for each fold, until it looks like an accordion
