Allsorts Challenge


The challenge at Allsorts this week is "Paper Piercing or Paper Piecing". This card combines both, the clothing is paper pieced and the edges of the paper have been pierced by the sewing machine!

The image and papers are from Cuddly Buddly - Skateboarding Boy and Peppy Papers. I resized the papers to make the pattern a more suitable scale for the boy's clothing.

Thanks for taking a look.
