Those 2 requests gave us the objectives for Lesson 4: Stitching exact curves.
~~ Sewing Lesson 4 ~~*Layer the fabrics as in Lesson 3.
*Pin the elephant to the center.
*Use a narrow, long zig-zag around the outer edge of the elephant, taking out pins as you stitch.
Don't worry about being too exact, as curved stitches across the elephant will help tack it down.
*Start curve (circle) stitching wherever you like. (We intended to start in the center and do stitching equal distance apart, but it didn't happen.) Try to sew in a circle, lines equal distance apart, manipulating fabric so as not to have to stop and pivot and turn. PRACTICE.
*Zig-zag around the outer edge. Try to use a denser stitch than used in Lesson 3.
