You will now move on to the next step. With the sewn fold on top again place wrong sides touching together and measure 3 1/2 inches pining down the fabric. Iron the fold. Sew your strip the same width as your first. Continue steps until you have 4 or more folds sewn.
I then took my fabric and measured it to my table. I wanted to have my table runner be close to 1/3 width of the table. From here I cut the remaining excess off leaving me about 1 inch to work with to finish the rough edge.
One one side fold the wrong sides together 1/2 inch and press with your iron. Seal the rough edge by folding in one more time by 1/2 inch and press with your iron. You will want to make sure you measure all the way down when you are pressing to make sure that your edge will stay 1/2 inch in width. With your sewing maching sew as close to the opening as possible. Follow same instructions for the other side.
Now that we have finished off our rough edges you will want to finish the design you have made on the top. I chose to make a pattern folding the bullets back and forth giving the fabric a 3 dimensal wave. Starting from the center of your length sew from one bullet to the next until you have sewn down all bullets. Measure to where you want your next tack. I measured about 8 inches apart. Fold your bullet the opposite way creating the wave. Finish to the edge of your length.
