Cutting the linen is always scary but will help. Measure out from the outermost stitch....cut one inch out on top and both sides. Cut 3/4 inch on the bottom.
After cuts are made baste Rick rack along the bottom
Now cut a 1 1/4 inch strip of the green swirl fabric from the eight inch side. The strip should be 1 1/4 inch by 8. Sew along the bottom...adjust seam so the "hills" of the Rick rack show.
