Do you Pinterest? I love Pinterest. This little guy I found while surfing, this weekend is a great reason why. He is a free pattern from...
I was in the mood for a quick and easy little paper piecing project. So I printed it out and started to work. There were a lot of little pieces in this project. Much more involved than I am used to, but not difficult by any means. I was so delighted to find that each section went together like clockwork. I'm feeling like I am on top of the paper piecing world! :-)
Here is my little guy!
It was one of those ratz a fratz moments. Does he look a little strange to you?
I guess that's what happens when you print out something, while your printer is running dangerously low on ink.
I see his paw is in tree branch fabric and the branch... well that's wrong too.
and I was so excited about my progress too
Now, I know a real quilter would take it all apart to fix it.
Some might even throw it in a corner and forget it.
Trust me I considered those options. LOL!!
But for me, the queen of fusible applique. I cheated instead.
Who says you can't fix anything with fusible and some clear thread!
The little guy is all better now, but it's a good lesson on using proper tools.
Either have a photo of what your working on, or have ink in your printer so you can tell what your supposed to be doing!
I know someone out there is saying...
I told you so!
Ok, I understand now!
Grab this adorable free pattern and make one up for yourself.
