not sure if that makes sense.

Then do the same with the other side. Then I usually stitch it to the back of whatever I'm putting it on.
Does that make any sense at all? I am really tired lol.
Yes, ladies, this makes perfect sense! Thank you so much! This is exactly the information I was looking for! I wasn't gathering it with the thread, and that was the problem. THANK YOU!!!
