In case you haven't noticed lately, I have been obsessed with sewing circles on my pages. I think I have done it on at least half of the pages I have done in the past few months lol. I don't know how many people are like me, but I cannot draw a freehand circle to save my life. Much less stitch anything that even resembles a circle once I stick the page in my sewing machine. To solve this problem, I keep circles of various sizes cut out of scrap paper handy in my supplies. When I want to stitch a circle, I grab one of my precut circles and place it where I want the stitched one to be, and I trace it with a pencil. Then I stitch a few times around the pencil line, using it as a guide. After I am done stitching, I use a good white eraser to remove the pencil line.

Oh yes, I love this LO!!!! :D

Great tip on the circles. I love how yours look perfectly imperfect, if that makes sense. I will need to try this with some circles I cut with my Cricut! TFS!

I love this layout - so soft and pretty!!

I'm not brave enough to try my sewing machine on paper so I just hand-stitch for now and save the machine for all my fabric projects. :D

I was wondering how you always managed to have perfect circles on your pages. :lol: Great idea!
