A Basket Full Of Big Shot Scallops

One of the sets of coasters I am making for the Big Shot Fabric swap.  I ironed Heat and Bond to the back of the fabrics.  I then cut them out with the Big Shot and the Scallop Circle dies.  I layered them (This was the hard part, getting them all even and aligned.) and set them in place by ironing.  After I had the top layer set, I sewed  the stitching by using my circle sewing attachment for my sewing machine.  Easy, peasy, circles!

This picture shows the attachment and how I lined the circles up to get the center.  I cut a paper scallop, folded it in four, and cut one section away.  This gave me a visual tool for lining up the center of the circle on the pin which is under the black cap on the attachment.  I drew lines with a permanent marker for where I wanted the lines on the circle.  Stazon remover takes them off after.

The attachment in the machine.
Happy stamping, er, sewing!

Absolutely awesome! Gorgeous fabrics too I might add. What kind of machine do you have, and is the attachment pricey? I don't sew much any more but this could change my mind.

And could you cut the scallops stacked to avoid the matching hassle? At least for the large base circles?
