Paper Piecing

I've got a fun paper pieced card for 2 different challenges- the Moxie Fab World and Lawnscaping- both paper piecing challenges.

I know Christmas is far off, but my only Lawn Fawn sets are "partly cloudy," "how delightful" (which can't really be paper pieced), and holiday themed stamps. So I went with the "winter bunny!"

I pieced the sled and the scarf on the bunny, and added trails of glitter from the sled. (I know- after my rant on glitter, you didn't think you'd ever see it here again! This glitter is chunky and wasn't too bad...)

The background paper was embossed with my swiss dots folder, and I hand-cut the cloud. I also put the cloud and snow layers on with foam tape to let them pop.





Oh yea- one more project. Yesterday I made this cute pincushion cuff following a tutorial I found here. The grey fabric was a scrap, the awesome yellow/white floral is from Joann Fabrics, and that button was from my stash.

Now I just need to do more sewing to put this to good use!!

  10. Eral is one of the the majority of classy in [URL=http://www.northfacedenalijacket.org/#633]north face denali jacket[/URL] industry. As a big famous brand inside China, it is never a lot less well-known than Bosideng. having said that,because [URL=http://www.northfacedenalijacket.org/#812]north face denali jackets[/URL] has a shorter history because it is founded in 1997. Bosideng has advantages over Eral.most people only know Bosideng.
