So...Here is a few of photos of my hydrangeas!
Think of them as gift from me to you!
but I have everything from blue to pink right now!
They are just under my cottage/studios kitchen window.
A large skirted counter aka the potting bench.
And a large round child's table. Like the ones used in Sunday School or kindergarten classes.
Oh and by the way...I was doing this all by myself...no photographer's assistant.
SO the pics are a bit blurry! So Sorry!
I hope you get the idea though!
Remember...You are working in reverse.
So lay the fabric face down on the table top.
just the cut end is laying over the edge and this is what you are seeing in these pictures.
Bring the pleats together... by overlappingthe fabric between your marks.
(Remember to overlap in the same direction for this look.)
Place the upholsterer's tape over the top and staple.
The tape is made from thin cardboard and gives a wonderful finished look to the pleats.
It also keeps you from using a million staples!
Work your way around the table repeating the folding over and matching pleats.
When you have finished , take the skirt off the table and let it fall to the floor.
Now...finger press your pleats by running your fingers down the front of the pleat.
Decide where you wish to place the nail head.
And simply hammer it in.
Then I added black rick-rack to cover my seams and staples...
The rope is attached with small nails and in order to make them disapear...
Twist the rope a little before you begin nailing.
