    What's the easiest way to finish? Hem, zig zag? I don't feel like putting a lot of time into this.

    I have used a decorative stitch on the edges of one layer. It turned out good. Play around with your stitiches until you find one that you like or just zig zag it.

    1 layer. Cutting & knotting would be a pain. I made cute pillows that way w students. They have precut kits at Oriental Trading Co. Good for a kids event.

    A scalloped rotary cutter works well. Nothing else is needed.

    Would that be used for a single layer or would you sew a seam allowance for a double layer with the scalloped edges?
