English Paper Piecing + Winner of Vintage Modern Charm Giveway


So, without my sewing machine, I guess there is no reason for me to procrastinate on trying English Paper Piecing (EPP ) that have been long in my wish of to do list...

I am using my current favourite fabric line : Field Study by Anna Maria Horner..

So here is my very First Sexy Hexy Flower!!!
turned into a pincushion...

Yes, not that neat, but hey, I am not a perfectionist and I love organic wonkiness anyway... LOL
But I think I can get better at it with more practice...

And as some people say.. It is kinda addictive... and I believe its true...
I even sew some in the car today. I even made some with a little bit of fussy cutting...

Isn't it fun!! so portable and easy to take out and tidy it up. I am in LOVE!

Hexi Flower - back I I learned how to bits of here and there...

And my first several hexies were done differently just to see which one I feel comfortable with.
I ended up with not basting together with paper (just clip at the corner),
I use any plain paper or magazine paper.. but i think using a freezer paper is not bad too especially if you have a die cutter..but I don't have yet, so I'll stick with cutting it slowly and precisely or maybe buy some precuts one too.. and whip stitch the hexies together..

I find this post helpful to start with.
Of course you can see more tutorial here, here, here, here and tutorial videos here and here... so many tutorials out there.. I mixmatch them to find the best way for me to do it..

Now, if you haven't try should! I am off to try new shapes!!
