for someone trying this for the first time would you suggest a heavyier weight fablic like you used or do you think it would matter?

I would suggest a thicker fabric than plain cotton.. that way, if you are not so good at making small stitches, you will not risk that they show in the front. Also, the fabric will stay in place without the need of ironing, steaming, or whatever :-)
Now that I think about it, I should try with denim! good luck!!!  Cheesy

Mata -

This is beautiful - and so small!

I have a vintage pillow done in this technique and it has forever baffled me - it's done so well that it looks like the fabric is fed through the "lattice" work.

I saw this a few days ago while looking through the OTT# Swap Gallery and I tried it and I'm in love. Thanks so much. I was planning on gathering fabric for a project I wanted to make, but this would look so much better than the drawstring method I was going to try.

In my excitement I forgot to ask - jou you pin or stitch down the wavy ends when attatching them to another piece of fabric or do you just stitch along the edge and let it tell you where it wants to fold - if that makes any sense...?

Hi! Well, I sew around the edges (but not too close to the lattice), in a way that the lattice work will lie "nicely", then trim a little the 4 sides if necessary, and attach this "pre-sewn" rectangle to the other pieces.
I don't like to pin so much.. and I think it would become too bulky anyways.
I hope this was useful :-) And thanks for the compliments! I hope you'll enjoy this technique as much as I do :-D

Mata -

Thanks so much for the advice, and for the quick response. When I finally get my project finished (after my swap stuff), I'll post the final results.
