    We take a template (Karen Kay Buckley, "Perfect Circles")
    or if not, take a an acetate, or a piece of cardboard,
    or a washed radiography and we mark the final size of the circle that we need.
    Cut it with the greatest possible care.
    If we see that the cut marks are at tips, with a nail file we can go smoothing gently until you get a smooth and polished finish. This will give a better finish to our work.
    Once we have our template, put on the reverse of the fabric to use
    and how to transfer it.

    We cut the fabric for the second mark and will look like this:

    Thread a needle with a thread be strong (for basting) and performed a
    hem (point - space - point) between the mark and the outside of the circle:
