I started cutting out circles by hand and then decided to speed things up and bought this.

Had Brett fix my already cut circles while adding the steam-a-seamDSC_6546-1

Then we, mainly Brett, cut out the rest. I just laid the fabric on top of the square adhesive sheets and cut them both out at the same time.DSC_6565-1

We did various sized circles with 5 different fabrics. I laid the shower curtain out flat on the living room floor and flung the circles like frisbees hoping for a random layout. I liked how it looked so I pined them in place and then got to work attaching them to the curtain. First with the iron (for the steam-a-seam) then with the embroidery floss.

I love it and so does Colin. Brett is a little concerned about the goldfish named Robert looking at him while he uses the facility :)

Robert would scare me too, but I love your creativity and the shower curtain!

I wondered if that tool worked well - worried that it may wander off the round as you used it. Seems like it was great for you! I love that shower curtain.
