Really fine sewing skills. How did you get your center so perfectly round? My stitching was very precise but when I turned the circle right side out it wasn't as smooth as I would like. Yours looks perfect!

Hi JoanneGram, thank you so much for the compliments! I think my center edges were able to lay flatter and take their shape because I did not do just a single snip around the edge every centimeter (1/3 of an inch?) like Amy did, but rather I clipped a "V" shape every centimeter - this helped in reducing the amound of fabric that would around the seam once the center piece was turned right side out. That and just plain old luck lol :)

Another trick is to take the blunt end of a thick knitting needle or a knife handle and run it around inside your circle to push those edges all the way out, roll with your fingers and finger press if necessary and then press.

Thanks for sharing. I plan to try your technique when I make the next one!
