Appliqué Tip

I've been appliquéing circles of 8 oval shapes on my Bonham Beauty mini, and thought I'd show you how I'm keeping the circles...circular. I made a template with an opening the size of the circle I am aiming for, and I pin it, centered, on the area where I need to place the ovals.

The little black hash marks line up with seams, so it's easy to keep things centered. When I glue-baste the ovals so their outer edges are just touching the template, the circle formed looks pretty good.

Now on to more stitching!
