April (from April Mae Designs) made this sweet English paper piecing travel kit for me using a tutorial she found here.
And as if the travel bag was not enough, she tucked some goodies inside! A Mickey Mouse tin (I’m a Disney fan!) with some papers, a thimble and scissors -
one completed hexie flower, and a generous fat quarter of some Briar Rose Strawberries-
Now I’ve tried English paper piecing before and got about this far:
And then there they sat. It’s a cute little stack, but I didn’t have a project in mind for them. Now that I have this awesome travel case I’ll be making more of these! April, you are awesome – thank you!
Oh, and if you’re not familiar with April you should go and visit her here. She also has a pattern shop - I’m a long time fan of her Hello Sun block of the month project!
