sewing perfect circles

Everyone seems to be making 1"x1" squares so I challenged my friend Diane (aka yarngoddess) to make some circles. Diane made hers using a paper base and bounced the challenge back to me. So here are my circles. I started with confetti fabric (from Beginners guide to Machine Embroidery by Pam Watts). I put cold water soluable fabric into a hoop and using the drawing pin/masking tape/eraser technique, stitched circles with straight stitch. I cut out my circles leaving the disolvable fabric intact, then restitched with a close zig-zag.

Then disolved the water soluable fabric. Voila!

Now I am going to have to think of ways to embellish these.
