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.

    Seems like this would be easier if the strips were sewn in tubes and then use a tube turner to turn them right side out. Then, press and continue as directed. Serging the edge before turning would help with fabrics that might tend to fray.
