I first sewed on the velcro (for extra durability) instead of the iron on kind.
Next I attached the ruffle. To do this fold the edge of the strip under start sewing. As you go fold/tuck the stip of 1 inch leather under you will only need to sew in the center of the 1" stip of leather not on both edges.
Fold the end under and back stitch to secure.
Happy Birthday (early) Barb.
* Note when I gave Barb her gift I was in a hurry and she didn't open it when I was there, her husband thought they were bracelets.
