Paper Piecing

I've been saying for ages that I was going to try paper piecing, but never seem to think of it when I'm actually at the craft table. That changed this week and I did finally try it. My friend, Michelle, in STL warned me that it was addictive and she most certainly was right. As soon as I cut out the pieces for the first image/ card, I went right back to stamp some more for 3 more cards!

There are 3 actual pieces of paper pieced for this image... one is the striped paper for the dress and then 2 pieces for the sleeve and socks.

I'm not a big fan of cutting stuff out with scissors, but I do like how the finished image looks!! Guess I will be doing more of it in the future!!


  1. She is very cute! I haven't tried paper piecing. I just dislike cutting things out by hand so much that I never do it. Congrats to you for finally trying and doing such a outstanding job on your first try!

  2. Very cute!! I was just looking at this image this morning and thought I should paper piece her.

  3. Oh, she's cute. Something new to try for me too. I really like how it came out.

  4. You rocked it! She's darling. Very nice card, love those flowers.

    I warned you ;-) Have fun!
