Step Description
1 For this lesson you will need a piece of silk organza measuring 15” (38.1cm) wide by 14” (35.6cm) long.
2A We will start, by securing our organza block to the short ends of the frame, lining up the edge of the organza to the twill tape edge of one end of the frame. Pin the organza to the twill tape along the edge.
2B Measure out a length of thread several inches (centimeters) longer than the width of the organza, and then thread your needle and knot the end.
