Paper and Pieces

I really, really do love to sew, especially children's clothes. I haven't been doing much sewing lately since my babies have gotten to big for smocked dresses or button on the shoulder suits. That's about to change since we have a new great nephew and another on the way. In the meantime, the next best thing(and a whole lot faster), is paper piecing on digital images. This week Paper Piecing is the challenge on the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog. The DT did an amazing job in getting us inspired, so be sure to check out there cards. I didn't have to go shopping for an image for this challenge, but be sure to check out Sassy Cheryl's store, as she's just added some new images, you don't want to miss.

This image is called Pretty Sassy Cindy, and isn't she just so typical of the average 4 year old little girl? I found the flowered papers in Summer Drigg's Sweet Springtime Kit and is called Pink Flowers. The wonderful thing about printable paper is that you can make it small enough that the flowers aren't "too big" a print for the dress. I love these high waisted dresses on little girls. The rest of her is colored with Copics. The sketch is one I found on Kathy's Waffle Sketch File. The other patterned papers are also from Summer Drigg's Springtime Kit, and the Polka Dotted Paper is from her Winter Gifts kit. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and perfect for Pretty Sassy Cindy.

Thanks for stopping by.
