You need: a few plates in different sizes
fabric for your circle
some thin fabric (I used the thin bit of the centre of a sheet)
Try out your plates until you find one that fits nicely over the centre of your dresden.
Draw around the plate on the thin fabric.
Put your thin fabric and the circle fabric right sides together
and sew around the line you drew.
Trim around the circle.
Pull out the thin fabric from the circle fabric and make a cut.
Turn the circle right side out and roll the edges with your fingers to make it lie flat.
Press (I haven't here) and your circle is ready to be sewn down.
I have to say this is not my original idea,
I think someone told me how to do this,
but I love the fact the circles turn out so good.
I'm hoping to have a good catch up this week.
I've cut all my petals and I plan on sewing all the points this week.
How are you going with yours??
Pop over to the Old Red Barn Co Flickr page and join in the fun.
Sorry my pictures are slightly wobbly this morning,
but I just wanted to get this post up and running!!
