Nice tutorial on how to dress something up with a scalloped edge. It would be perfect for a little girls' dress.

Something easy for the first time. Maybe a runner or a placemat.

I think this would be pretty on pillowcases to practice the technique.

Thank you Mary!! I had tried to scallop a dress for my niece with no directions - what a MESS. Again thanks

Interesting article but it really did not say much. I wanted to add scallops around a quilt I was making but could not figure out how to do it. What is the formula and how do you get around the corners? How would you determine how deep the scallops should be? Maybe I need a book...

Fantastic tutorial! I wanted to do a tunic with scalloped edges for a renaissance costume, but couldn't figure out how to do the scallopes. It's so obvious now. Thanks for the post!
Love Vikings!
