Cut your fabric in strips of 3.5 inches wide. Fold in half and make ruffles. Lots and lots of them...I used about ten yards of cheap fabric for this. It was $1.99 a yard and I'm sure you can get it even cheaper than that. Any fabric will do. I chose these colors because I wanted a pattern to look like a manicured lawn/garden viewed for above. With roses :) I chose two different shades of green and a fuchsia for the 'roses' These colors also went well with our decor and fabrics in our bedroom. Below is my awesome grandma sewing away tons of ruffles...Love how she prefers her spool of thread on the floor and on top of my prized tequila bottle...still unopened.
If you are wondering why there is a break in color (in the lighter green section), it was sewn with both sides of ruffles facing in towards the middle. Take note when sewing how the ruffles will look when facing a certain direction.
Place a cheap rubber mat from the dollar store to make it non-sliding. Also non skid matting under it can be found at IKEA
