Going Around in Circles

I recently saw a demonstration on Create and Craft where a circular stitching attachment was being used on a sewing machine and, guess what, I actually have one which has been lying around unused for a few years.  I thought I'd just dig it out and have a go to remind myself how it worked and having produced a piece of around 8" square thought it would be a shame to just put it aside so I've made it into a pocket for a bag, designed using up some of my fabric stash.  I'd like to say that the buttons were stitched on for decoration and of course they are quite decorative but one of the things I'd forgotten about these circles is that where they meet up,  some of the fancy stitches don't exactly match - the circles line up OK but the actual pattern doesn't finish as an exact match.  I must say that when I saw it demonstrated I had an idea this had happened but the camera panned away quite quickly onto another part of the design, presumably so that we wouldn't notice!!  Anyway I thought I'd just share this bag with you today and I hope you are all having good weather for the Bank Holiday - certainly looks better than yesterday at the moment anyway.

If anyone knows how to ensure that the fancy stitches match where they meet I'd be interested to hear as long as it doesn't involve complicated calculations!!

  3. Wow, this is lovely. Not a fabric/sewing person so can't advise on your issue - wouldn't of noticed if you hadn't pointed it out actually!
