Paper Piecing Party - August 9th Edition
Did you know there was a Paper Piecing Party linky party on Fridays at Quiet Play? Well, neither did I til I came across it this week, and since I happened to give paper piecing a go this week, I am going to play along!
This week I decided I would delve a little further into Paper Piecing and really try to do something a little more involved. I have to say ... I made a zillion and one mistakes and had to redo a whole bunch of stuff ... and in the end the finished product here is NOT how it should be but I am pretty damn proud of this first attempt.
The handle of the teapot does not match up at all lol, but I am thinking it will be fine, this is also for my mom, I thought I would make her a few mug rugs for Christmas... also something I have never made before. My poor mom is getting all my screwed up rejects lol. I might as well spray paint some damn macaroni and send it to her while I am at it lol. I think she actually still has a macaroni art project from when I was in Elementary school lol.
Now I just need to baste, quilt and bind it.
I did a second one as well, this one went smoother as it was an easier design, and I love it, its so cute!
Both patterns were free, I think I got the Hi speech bubble from Etsy but the teapot I am not sure about. If they are free I grab em while I can. I figure until I learn what I am doing I am not ready to pay for patterns!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday! I can not wait til Monday, as Monday is back to school here and I am so ready for some quiet sewing time, woohoo! What are you up to today?
