Good afternoon, I need HELP
I'm on step 13 and I'm worried for what it is asking me to do in step 14.
This is a decrative pillow with a ruffle (1st project in over 30 yrs) It is telling me, with right sides together, pin band facing band (over ruffle), matching small dots, stitch, trim seams and corners. I'm so confused on what it is going to look like after I trim since one band is already in place and now they want me to add to it, the picture doesn't make much sense.
Thank you in advance..

It sounds like you are sandwiching the ruffle between the band and the band facing. It sounds right.

If you are not sure how it will look, you could baste it together or pin it and turn it. I'm sure it will make sense once you do it.

Thanks, I think I will baste it and see, Lawd knows I have ripped everything else out at least once. lol Note to self, no more patterns with ruffles for the next year!

Ha! Ruffles can be a bit of a pain. I would suggest not trimming the fabric until you are sure it is right.
