Paper Piecing

Paper piecing can be messy and a lot of people become frustrated with this method because of this fact.  But tracing or printing the pattern from your printer onto fine interfacing can overcome this problem.  What it won't over come is when some stupid person didn't check that the interfacing was without adhesive!!

Ironing the piece on a piece of bake paper and then giving it a spray of water overcame this, thankfully.  I need to make a trip to the mainland to buy more interfacing.

There is a great video tutorial demonstrating how to paper piece on You Tube by Angela Walters
