Wonky wheel tutorial


Have you liked the wonky wheel?
Today I post a little "how to do" if someone want to make it.


1- Freehand cut a circle from a paper square about 8"x8" (20x20cm) with a center hole .


2-Hand cut some slices from 3 (or, better, more) strips of different fabrics about 6" of height.


3-Using the paper circle as a foundation stitch the slices right side together and continue until the circle is completed.
4-Trim the excess of fabric from the border of the circle.


5-Complete as for an appliquè circle.
6-Place the wheel on the background an complete with a star (or a heart or a free hand circle...) to cover the hole in the center.
CONGRATS! Your wonky wheel is DONE!

  12. love this! but how do you sew down the last slice? I mean how do you complete the circle so that the last slice and the first slice are sewn together?

  17. W jaki sposób usuwasz ten papier po uszyciu koła? Trzeba je naszyć na bloku, chyba najlepiej ręcznie? Papier trzeba chyba usunąć wcześniej? W przeciwnym razie zostanie na zawsze w bloku, albo trzeba przeciąć blok od spodu i tamtędy wyjmować papier - z tym, że jest przyszyty i tak łatwo nie będzie.
    Ta gwiazdka zasłaniająca środek jest śliczna, ale bardzo trudno ją uszyć, żeby wierzchołki były płaskie (są pod nimi fałdy tkaniny), postanowiłam więc zakryć otwór zwyczajnym krążkiem tkaniny.
    Pomysł tego patchworku jest bardzo ciekawy. Pozdrowienia,
    G.
