This is the hardest, as in most tedious step of this short tutorial. Luckily, you can bypass it if you are using materials like jersey that do not fray!
Here you will fold the sides of each strip inward to the center and then again in half. This will give you one quarter (1/4) of the width you began with.
With each fold you will want to press just to ensure that your folds stay in place, and I recommend pinning as shown in the photo, to make life easier in the next step.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
