    Hi , I got this idea from Mary Lou Weidman's website .I draw a circle with a plastic lid on a used dryer sheet. Place this sheet on the right side of a piece of fabric . Sew on the circle line ,cut it out close to the stitching line, make a slit in the dryer sheet to turn it inside out and press.Trim dryer sheet away if you like .
    Place this circle in the center of a square . (Find center by folding circle and square into 4 and matching where lines cross.) Stitch around with buttonhole stitch and cut with ruler horizontal and vertical through center (4 parts). Turn parts in different ways to get different patterns . I experimented with different seizes and got some fun results . I do hope you understand what I said. I am Dutch. Bobby. Have fun!! 8-)

    If possible could you post it as a tutorial with a few pictures? Sounds very helpful!
