    Continue working around and pressing the fabric down with the iron.

    Keep on going until you have a kite shape like this.

    Now, go back to the edge you started with and unfold that edge and then fold the backing fabric back onto itself by 1/2" and finger press down.

    Now, fold that edge over again so that you now have a 1/2" wide border on top that has a finished edge next to the window fabric (since there is 1/2" of backing fabric folded under that). Finger press this down.

    Working counter-clockwise, do the same double folding thing with the next edge. Pay attention to the size of the borders you're creating, as they should all look a uniform 1/2".

    Continue working your way around. The fold of the edge you just finished will help hold down the previous edge you folded.

    Press with a steam iron to set the folds.

    Now, we're going to stitch down those folds in a counter-clockwise pattern. So set the needle down into the fabric so that it is just inside the fold line and just less than 1/2" from the edge of the window fabric.
