Thank you for all the lovely comments on my tutorials, lots of people emailed me with questions, I have tried to answer you all, but a lot of you are no-reply bloggers, if you are wondering why I haven't emailed you, it's because I can't!
I chose to appliqué my compass onto my background, I want to have the strength of both layers of fabric as I don't intend to quilt this one :)
Step one is to iron a piece of freezer paper to the back of your fabric, this helps to stabilise it. I then drew the outer finished circle with a compass, and then added the seam allowance (my cutting line) I then removed the FP
I folded the circle into 1/8th's and used the crease lines to help line up my compass.
I pinned my compass in place and needle-turned the outside edge, before cutting out the final circle shape.
I decided to use some small mother of pearl buttons in place of the dots.
