Step 1: Scrap buster!
Circle to trace
pencil or other fabric marking tool ( tailor's chalk works well for dark fabrics, or a white colored pencil)
sizing or starch
buttons, trim, jewelry findings
Procedure: Assuming you know some basic sewing skills like running stitch and how to knot thread, it is an easy project.
- Collect a bunch of scraps and iron them- it doesn't work to draw or cut out wrinkled fabric, trust me I've tried it. Or you could use new fabric.
- Select a circle to trace (can, plate, plastic lid or you could make a circle template of thin cardboard), trace the circle on the fabric.
- Cut out circles
