Dottie's World Challenge-Colour

It's Juliet's turn to set the challenge on Dottie's World this week. She was inspired by all the fireworks so has asked us to come up with something colourful.

I fancied a change so, as I haven't done any paper piecing for ages I thought it was time I did.

I chose the Peggy Pig download fom the Animal Magic collection and printed her out four times onto my four colour choices, cut out, pieced together and whizzed it all through my sewing machine before adding the finishing touches.
I like the layering I've done on the flower, you might be seeing some more of those frrom me. You know that Sizzix flower die must be my most used die of all time, it's so handy!

I forgot to say, I cut the scalloped background on my Sillhouette- but only just managed it as my sticky mat has finally lost it's stick, I had to tape it down!


Thanks for looking.

Wow Lou, Peggy looks amazing and I love her patterned towel. (have you tried spraying your mat with repositionable spray mount? I use it when I make my mats for my craftrobo, laminate a sheet of card then spray, works a treat for Robbie, HTH) x
