I put my sewing machine into ACTION!!!! I must tell you this Singer sewing machine was purchased in 1968 brand new by my dear Grandma as a graduation present to me. I have sewn on this very machine my entire adult life. It is now 42 years old and still running strong!!!!!! I could get a new machine but I can't bear to part with this memory of my sweet grandma.
I cut the sheet to the dimensions to fit the top, lined that piece to make it double for durability. Then I measured to the floor for the side ruffles plus a seam allowance and gathered two sheet length pieces, and gathered, and gathered. Then I attached the ruffle to the top piece.
Checked for fit, ahhhhhhh perfect, and added a couple of bows to each side of the ottoman.
And wa-la, such a difference it makes in the room, I just love it and it took me about and hour and a half and $1.00 to make.
