I also did that to the larger one..it was a little more cumbersome but it was better than needle turning the fabric. I love the totem pole fabric...so different...
Hi all, I'm back from my camping trip. Just arrived home late morning.

I was taught to make circles this way Honchey. I also used school glue and glued it down before I stitched around the edge. Will get mine posted sometime today.
