Instructional Steps:

1: Fold fabric in half and then in half again to form a square. It will be 4 layers thick.

2: Use a superboard, pushpins, yardstick, and marking pen to draw a circle on the fabric. Insert a pushpin through the point of the folded corner of fabric and into Superboard to secure. Do not completely unfold Superboard and pin through 2 layers of the Superboard to prevent any damage to work surface. Use additional pushpins to keep fabric from shifting.

3: Slip hole in yardstick onto the pushpin. This hole is at the 1” mark so final measurement of circle will be 1” shorter than the marking on yardstick.

4: Position the marking pen point at 23”. Draw an arc from one edge to the other. Make a second mark at 3” mark. This will be the opening around the base of the tree.

 

5: Cut along marks to cut out circle and tree opening.
