When Kimberly asked me what my favorite notion was I didn’t even have to think about it…Perfect Circles by Karen Buckley are at the top of my list! I LOVE them! If you love appliqué these are a “must have” notion. You’ll be able to make a perfect circle every time in just a few easy steps! The package includes lots of different sizes and directions are included with the package. Just to show you how easy they are to use I’ll make one for you out of my new fabric Puttin’ on the Ritz!
Trace around the circle with a pencil and cut out about ¼” away from traced line.
Paint edge with fabric sizing or Best Press. Press with iron for a few minutes making sure the sizing is dry.
Remove circle template, turn over and you’ve got a perfect circle ready for appliqué!
I promise you’ll get lots of compliments on your appliqué circles. Perfect Circles are my notion of choice!
Very nice! Thanks for the tip!
Perfect Circles are fabulous! I had to use the top to a bottle of vitamins one time to get the size I needed. Now I have every size in the world, and I love them! Love your Puttin' on the Ritz, Anne; especially those fleur-de-lis!
I just recently bought some of these and can't wait to try them!!
I have been petrified to do circles…major fear…but that I could do..Thanks for the tip. I might just have to get me some of those!! 🙂 🙂
this is the same exact way I have been making circles for years – this method works really well.
They really are perfect circles! 🙂
I have been a Bunny Hill fan for years. 🙂
I can't live without these perfect circles in my applique!!!
Oh My – I love these and will be on the look out. Judy C
Looks like 'Perfect Circles' is a notion I'll have to get. I want to start to applique using a different method than fusible raw edge. I luv the turned edge and hand stitched look. I'm going to follow Anne's tutorial on her blog. I luv the look. Thanks Anne and Kimberly. Pauline
Best invention ever!
