With wrong sides together, using 1/2” seam allowance, sew strip to form a 2-1/2”x90” strip and gather forming a ruffle. Sew decorative cording on top of gathered strip, raw edges even. Measure 1-1/2” from finished design and with right sides together, attach ruffle overlapping ends. Finish using favorite pillow directions.
