Step 1:

Set Up Your Paper Strips and Sewing Machine

For this project, I’m using fabric pieces that go across the short side. Decide what you’d like to do, and find scraps of fabric that fit.

Step 2: Plan Your Strip and Pick Out Fabric Remnants

Make sure that the fabric pieces go over each edge of the tape, and then sew the pieces together onto the paper.

Step 3: 

Sew Your First Pieces.

Don’t worry about making your lines super straight; being a little messy just adds to the character of the finished product.
