Step 1

Fold the felt in half widthwise so you end up with a 28 1/2 x 28 1/2-inch square with the fold along the left side. Place the end of the measuring tape on the top of the folded edge. Use the chalk to mark a quarter circle with a 28 1/2 radius. Cut through both layers of felt along the chalk mark.
