    You can do your curved seam in one of two ways. This is easeing it in.

    Resulting in this.

    OR... you can face your 1/4 circle with a light fabric and turn it.

    Sewing the 1/4 circle to the facing.

    Clip the curve and turn.

    Top stitch the 1/4 circle to the bottom of the fan.

    Cut your back and batting. I turned the curved edge of the back over the top of the batting then pinned it to the fan just below the valleys of the points.

    Here you can see the points above the backing and batting.

    The point side is finished and you only have to bind the two straight sides turning the ends under on the points. Enjoy!!!

    Wow, great tut, would like to give this a try but don't have a circle cutter, so how do I measure to determine the size circle required? Not to bright in figuring these things out.

    You can use a compass or just take the curve of the bottom of the fan and add 1/2 inch to it.
