C.R.A.F.T 35 - Paper Piecing

Yayy! I seem to be back up and running, in the main, now! Still adding programs and had no end of conflict probs with my peripherals and the new Windows 7, but the answer is to go to the product main site and get a new driver download - they're usually free. Clearly, the conflicts have been anticipated!

This week on C.R.A.F.T, we have a fab tutorial from our own Julie on how to paper-piece.

I've never tried this technique before and Julie's tutorial made it really easy to understand and do.

I've used a fab little cat image from our own Claire too - a real team effort this week ! Have a look on her blog - her Doodles are so good and would make any project stylish and professional-looking.
Claire is our sponsor this week and you have the opportunity of winning not one but three of her wonderful images from her blogshop Shophandmade'!

I'm afraid all the papers used are from stash but I do know the green main body of the cat is a Paper Pizzazz design from years and years ago! I've been looking for another of the same book for years but can't find one.

Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed playing!
