Shopping our Stash #210 - Paper Piecing!


Paper piecing is one of those classic techniques that I sometimes forget about - good thing there are challenges like Shopping our Stash to remind us of the good stuff! Using digital images for paper piecing is a little bit more labour-intensive at the beginning but totally worth it - looky!



Supplies: bird & sentiment digi stamps from From the Heart; papers from MME and Studio Calico; Spectrum Noir markers; MME enamel dots 



A close up to show you his eyes & beak are popped up - I added some colour to the hats, but yes, I paper pieced the polka dots on his belly. Crazy!

Check out how the SOS crew showed off their paper skillz:

Quite awesome paper-piecing going on here! (I probably would have taken a short-cut and coloured the dots, so kudos to you!) And the sentiment is quite perfect, isn't it?
