Now they are happy in their new home (with room to grow)
What you will need: Outside fabric, lining fabric, cuff fabric, stabilizer (I used 'innerfuse')
I would recommend using a jeans needle, as things can get rather bulky. My sewing machine also has a setting for heavy, woven fabric.
Start with your fabric spread out. (Flat would be good. I should have ironed!). I am using two old skirts that are old/out of style/too big. One denim and one khaki.
Draw your circle - any size you wish. Just remember you will lose about an inch in the seam allowance.
I wanted a 20 inch circle, so I used a pencil and string cut to 10 inches.
Cut out one circle of your 'good fabric', one lining fabric and one circle from your stabilizer.
