So if you guys want to learn how to make this stay tuned for material, I will be using this pink fleece right here and I thought about a yard of pink fleece just because I wasn't so sure how big I wanted to make my doughnut. But you could buy somewhere between half a yard to a whole yard, depending on how big you want to make your doughnut next, I will be recycling my throw, and this throw right here is a fleece material as well, and it's like a light brown color. So this is perfect for a doughnut okay. So the first thing I'm going to do is lay out my fleece donut material right here.
I think I'm going to do make my donuts about 20 inches wide. So I need to add an inch to that and make it twenty one inch. So half of twenty one inch is about ten and a half. So what I need to do is find a midpoint mark and you want to make sure that the circumference around this area gives you enough space where you're going to cut is ten and a half inch, and I mark a dot right here already. So you can see there who is take the tip of your measuring tape and put it right there and just hold it, and what I'm going to do now is mark ten and a half right here.
Now I'm going to go to the side and I'm going to mark 10 and a half again all right. So I think I have enough dots to connect the dots and just draw a circle and you could actually do half if you want. You don't have to necessarily do the whole thing like fold this in half, but I don't like my material to be so thick. So I'm going to do it this way. Okay, so with our donuts, we need to make a hole and what I'm going to do about two and a half inch around okay.
So before I'm going to start cutting the donuts, I'm going to start pinning the sides in you you so now I'm going around the circle right here, just because I'm going to cut the center. I think I want to just make that little cut. So that way I could cut around it. Okay, so I pretty much removed all the pins out and I just need one part of the donuts. So that way, I could measure my frosting and I just need one layer of fabric for the cake, so just lay it out what I'm going to do now is I'm a take my sharpie I'm going to trace, and since this is just one piece of Breakneck that we will be using, you could actually fold it in half mark the midpoint, so this is five inches right across and I'm going to mark it at two and a half right there.
So that way we know where the midpoint is now for the pink. I'M going to leave about 1/4 or 1/8 of an inch extra fabric, and this one you could cut right on the line just because we're not going to use the whole piece of pink right here. Okay, so add at this point: you should know which side is the right side and wrong side. So with the fleece, it really depends on what you prefer better. This is the more fuzzier side and I like the more fuzzier side to show.
So this is the side that it's going to be on that you're going to see on the pillow. So I'm going to fold this in half now having the wrong side facing out toward me, because I'm going to draw on the wrong side so just take out your marker and you want to make some uneven lines just like that. Okay and that's going to be a frosting, and now I'm just going to cut around there okay, so the next step is to take out fabric glue and what I'm going to do is I'm going to put some glue on the edges of the frosting just like That all right, so now we just need to wait a couple minutes and then we will move on to the next step. Okay. So, while I'm waiting for the glue to dry out, I'm going to take out some of my foam sheets right here and I actually cut little parts for my foam sheets here and you can get this at any craft store.
