*** Remember- to trace pattern -have card or paper right side up and put pattern wrong side down onto paper (trace the pattern with a light box, etc. on the wrong side, or just make 2 copies of your pattern and trace the 2nd one after you cut it out) you want to trace on the right side of your card or paper. Attach pattern on the right side of your paper with tape that isnt too sticky (painters tape, repositionable tape, or scotch tape that you have stuck to fabric to make it not so sticky). You will be working on the wrong side of the paper when applying your cut strips of paper. Make sure the fold is facing into the opening of the pattern.

THIS VIDEO DEMONSTRATES HOW TO MAKE A PAPER PIECING. THE PATTERN IS OF A BOY IN A TURKEY COSTUME... I LOVE IT AND WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU. PAPER PIECINGS ALWAYS INTIMIDATED ME, THEY LOOKED SO HARD! BUT I TRIED IT ONE DAY RECENTLY AND FELL IN LOVE! THIS IS THE 4TH ONE I HAVE MADE AND HOPE TO DO MANY MORE! I DO HAVE THE PATTERN IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN IT FOR YOURSELF. I DO ADVISE SHRINKING IT DOWN AS IT IS ABOUT 8" HIGH AFTER IT IS ASSEMBLED. PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO EMAIL YOU THE PATTERN OR YOU CAN EMAIL ME DIRECTLY AT LUV2LEARNATHOME@AOL.COM. THANKS SO MUCH FOR WATCHING... I KNOW THE VIDEOS ARE LONG, SO I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME OUT OF YOUR BUSY SCHEDULES!
AS ALWAYS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE MY BLOG & VIDEOS WITH ANYONE.
THIS VIDEO IS DEDICATED TO YOU "CB"... NOW GO MAKE A PAPER PIECING WOMAN!
