I decided to give circles another try.
Sujata made some and then...
she gave me some encouragement.
Isn't that what we ALL love about blogland???
I began again....
Using a VERY HIGH TECH method...
I cut two circles...
Using a smallish plate as my TEMPLATE.
The rotary cutter zipped around the rim
Nice and Easy. ;)
I cut 10 slices of pizza.
I DID not measure.
I DID not worry and stress.
Zip. Zip. Zip. Zip.
I now have enough pieces for TWO circles.
I kept my slices in the same position and sewed them together.
I also used some batting scraps.
If you look CLOSEly you can see I
BASTED them to the back side of the front of my circle.
I used a very large stitch.
(This makes turning the circle right side out SOOoo much easier!
The basting stitches are super simple to pull out.)
I then TRIMMED the batting.
Added a backing.
Turned it RIGHT side out....
slip stitched the opening....
I also added a few quilting stitches.
Two Mug Rugs.
Two Little doo-dads.
I'm not sure WHAT to call them.
Thanks for the encouragement Sujata!
If I practice a bit more
I MIGHT be able to get those center seams to match....
In my DREAMS!!!!
You know what though???
I kind of like the wonkiness of them!
Good thing, huh?
