Another simple but effective idea from Jennie – the Queen of twiddling and fiddling.
Another great idea from Jennie, which she reminds us is from her book Tucks & Textures Two so that is where you will find comprehensive workshop notes.
She talks you through how to make a large circle using your ruler; how to mark this up with cutting lines at 30 degree sections and while Jennie goes out and purchases a new protractor, this angle is on most rotary cutting rulers; once you’ve cut through both circles of fabric you need to label and follow the instructions carefully – do not overthink this – just do as teacher says!!!!
As always this workshop is full of small but useful tips such as how to stablize the hole in the centre before applying your yo-yo; using bias strips to apply your circle to the background square and again using some of those fancy stitches that so many of the machines now come with – but don’t discount the old favourite zig-zag!
