Step 3: Make Straps

Fold strap pieces in half lengthwise and press.

Reopen and fold raw edges into center and press.

Press strap closed. Should be 1 inch wide.

Mark 3/4” up from each end of the straps.

Sandwich the gathered edge of the ruffle pieces between the strap pieces and pin. Make sure the hem of the ruffle matches up with the marks.

Stitch strap closed close to the edge and top stitch along the opposite edge if desired. Press.
