Aim for the timber pieces to be at a right angle to the sides of your tea towel - don't focus on the top/bottom of your tea towel being parallel to the bars, because tea towels are not usually sewn perfectly square.
The hem of the frame does not need to fit into the slot - the cord will come out-and-over the hem.
When installing your tea towel into the bottom piece of timber - work your way from the outside to the centre. You will end up with a loop of cord in the centre.
