Question:
I understand why and how you cut the X in the fabric for the window  and then folded back the fabric to make a pretty edge, but why didn't you do that for the circle wheel hole also?

hi rayno;  Good question!  Undecided   I think its totally doable, but you know how it is when you're figuring something out as you go along!

 I guess when i made it I thought it would be too complicated to have a folded seam around the circle - i imagined that the folds would end up making the circle look like a many-sided shape rather than a circle.  PLUS i thought that the whole thing is on such a small scale that sewing the flaps down once they had been folded over would be complicated, and thus it was highly likely that i would fudge it up! 

Oh; plus i liked the felt showing thru.

If you can do it well, than i bow down in worship!!   heck, maybe i'll give it a try....

Oh good call about the circle turning into a sided-thing. I love how it looks quilted with all the pretty stitching :-)
I have clear and colored plastic vinyl, I'm going to try this later! thanks for the really good tut.

thanks so much for the tute!!!  Grin  i was rather stuck on what to get my sister for christmas... but this is a brilliant idea! mine's almost done and it is looking better than i expected  Smiley

i did do the folding in the edges of the circles and it worked quite well, you just have to be sure you have lots of little flaps if you really want it to be a circle.

and i got my vinyl at walmart.

thanks again!  Grin

i think you can also get this vinyl at most fabric stores, especially if they have a home decor section;  it comes on big rolls, in a few different thicknesses.   Its usually used for tablecloth covers...

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.
