I hope that makes some sense. Also, I do not weave my needle in an out to make an accordian fold. I fold by hand using the needle as my center point.
So you just tack it in the middle with your needle & thread? I sew all my bows, so I was totally trying to do what you were saying, use it to create my creases.
