I’m getting a little braver – these are my first pleats! :) I messed up the handles and attached them the wrong way, so I had to cut them and re-attach – oops! Now they’re not quite as nice, so I might redo them… we’ll see. For now, I’m just glad it doesn’t look like a total mess! The fabric is two more of the $1 sheets I got from the thrift store.
By the way – can anyone tell me how to make the pattern show up? I put the link to it in the “burda patterns” box, but it just ignores it – what’s up with that? Should I just put the pattern number or something?
