    Open out the binding. Place it on your work right sides together and position the upper fold in the binding along your stitch line so that
    its top raw edge aligns perfectly with the raw edge of your work. Pin or tack in position. Take your time to encourage the bias binding to follow the curve in your fabric smoothly.

    Cut 4 3/8in x 4 3/8in (11cm x 11cm) circles from both fabrics and your stabiliser. Lay one piece of fabric right side down (the lining), and then lay the stabiliser on top. Finally, place the second piece of fabric (the outer) right side up on top of the stabiliser.

    Step 5

    Align all the raw edges so that you have the stabiliser sandwiched between the two fabrics, both of which have their right sides facing out. Use a hot iron to fuse all three layers together – this is most efficiently done if you iron on both sides. Stitch in large zigzags around the circumference through all three layers to prevent fraying whilst you work.

    With the outside fabric facing you, take your wide bias binding and open it out, laying it right side down on your circle of fabrics. Fold one end over by 11 3/16in (5mm) and position it so that the top/outer edge of it aligns with the raw edge of the fabric. Tack the binding to the circle of fabric all the way around, easing it carefully to fit and align with the curved edge to make it fit in as smooth a circle as you can. Tack along the fold crease in the bias binding nearest the edge of the circle. When you’ve completed the circumference, trim the bias so that it overlaps the other folded end by about 3/8in (1cm).
