    Tip
    When
    it comes to stitching your front and back circles together, make sure
    your ruffles are pinned away from the raw edge to avoid stitching them
    flat.

    1) Tear your fabric
    into three 10cm-wide strips, along the entire width. Cut two circles
    from the remaining fabric, each measuring 32cm in diameter.

    2) With right sides together, machine-stitch the three strips
    into one long piece. Press the seams open, then fold the strip in half
    along the length and press. Open out. Take one red fabric circle and match the 
long edge of the fabric strip to the edge of the circle and pin.

    3) Machine-stitch
    along 
the fold mark, turning the circle as you go, gathering the strip
    slightly. 
Keep stitching your way around the circle, working towards
    the centre, matching the outer edge of the strip to the inner edge sewn
    previously. Stop just before the centre and hand-stitch the remaining
    strip to form a rosebud. Machine-stitch the second circle on 
top of the
    ruffled front, leaving a gap of 12cm. Turn the right way and fill.
    Hand-stitch the opening closed.
