Tutorial: Easy Peasy Scallops, the No Measure Kitchen solution


We all love those cutely rounded scallops but I have to admit to being a big lazy bones, sometimes measuring seems like a lot of hardwork to me, if this sounds like you then hop to your kitchen and grab your measuring spoons, 5 (or more) different size curves, everyone has them and you always know where they are in case you need to recreate the same project.


 

My project was small so I could just fold the fabric in half and half again, line up the right measuring spoon to fit to the quarter of the felt.


Take that size and draw round it as many times as needed on your fabric, (obv mine was only 4)

 

Easy huh? don't you just love simple ways to do things? I wouldn;t suggest this is suitable for anything big, but for the small projects it works just fine.

P.s Spidermom this may or not be an upcoming project for you so look away Madam!
