How to make a circle pattern

To make our circle pattern, fold a piece of 15 x 15 inch heavy paper in half. Then fold in half again. Round the edges to make a circle. Another option is using a large plate or bowl and tracing around the bowl on your paper.



Unfold and use this as your pattern. Cut out two circles from your material using the circle pattern. Pin your pattern in place or draw around the circle with a fabric marker.

making a circle pattern

Place the two material circles with right sides together. Stitch together leaving an opening to turn inside out. Turn right sides out and stuff the pillow. If you are using a pillow form leave a larger opening for inserting the pillow. Otherwise stuff with batting.
