A good friend is getting married in a few weeks. She asked me to make the ring bearer pillow and a few other things for her wedding. I used the extra fabric from the ring bearer pillow to make a garter. I just made up the method. It was pretty easy.
Step 1: Cut the fabric. I cut it about 8” wide (cut it half of the desired finished width) and 2x as long as I wanted it to end up. I cut it to 26” long.
Step 2: Fold it in half and stitch it on one short end and the long end. Leave the other short end open.
Step 5: Shirr! I started shirring and did one continuous line of stitching. I completed five rows of shirring. (Need help with shirring? Check this post.)
