    Your topper would make anyone smile, it is so cute. How sweet of you to "whip" it up for a friend and how thoughtful of her to care so deeply for her sister. God bless.

    Once you have your octagon, you just sew strips around it. Some people do every other side first then fill in the empty sides, some start with the first side, only sewing it halfway (leave unsewn towards the side where your last strip will be sewn), sew all the strips, when you get to the last strip, sew it down, then finish sewing the first strip. You can build out the octagon however you like, either with strips all the same width, or vary the widths for each strip set added. Because the octagon is essentially a blank canvas, you can piece it, embroider it, FMQ it, applique it....if you search the board for Octagonal table toppers there are lots of pictures.

    that is so adorable. She is going to love it, not to mention the caring that went into the project just for her. Thats the best part of all.

    Thanks for sharing. What a good idea.

    Thank you for those instructions.

    I have made several of the octagonal toppers but I sew them opposite sides first. I will try this one next time. It gives it a whole different look.
