Red velvet pillow and have that. I think it's called seam allowance now, if any of you sew and you're like master Sowers, I don't know what I'm doing, but I just am kind of giving you this as an idea of something that you could do so that's what I did is I have these cut and then the very next step is with some of the extra fabric I cut strips, and I did strips that were about 57 inches long out of the fabric, and all you have to do.
I think they're about maybe an inch and a half two inches. You just do a little snip in the fabric so like this and just tear it and it tears on a straight line. So there's no use in like trying to cut these straight lines just rip. It and it'll be perfect. So then, today, on the sewing machine, I put the sewing machine on the longest stitch length and I sewed just down the middle of them and they were actually longer, but I cut them in half after I sewed them. So then the next step is you're just going to ruffle them.
So you just pull a thread, so I think it wound up being the bottom thread. That was the one that was kind of easier to pull and you're just going to bunch it to make ruffles. So I have one here that is finished and yeah it's you know got some frayed edges, but you know that's that shabby chic.
