circle

                     FRONT                                                               BACK

 I tried making some circles yesterday.
This pincushion inspired me!!!!
But....
I didn't want to make a pincushion.
Sooo...
I made my "sprockets" just a little bit longer.
And...
filled this circle with Insul Bright for a pot holder!

For a first time circle maker I did o.k.
I need to work on a smooth edge to that curve
and
matching up ALL those points in the middle.

Whew!
Sure glad I had some embroidery floss to
make a little tassle!
I wanted to HIDE the ugly truth....
My seams did not match up that great. ;/

  4. Have tried different size plates, but 9" seems the best for potholders! Love your wedges-what did you use? Keep those projects coming;love your ideas! Thanks.
