paper pieced sewing machine

Have you seen all the new paper pieced patterns that have came out lately?
They are amazing.
You can see everybody's work on the Sew Out Loud Flickr group
So of course I had to get on it
and sew at least one of them.

I decided to start with this one from Charise Creates.
The "vintage sewing machine and notions" is a little easier than the "vintage studio",
but still pretty advanced, well at least more challenging than all the animals I made before!

(I still need to embroider the needle!)

I have very few fabric with words on it, so I was a little limited, but I was able to use the one
I had in quite a few places, like the bottom of the machine, the button jar,

and the thread.
The fabric I used is Vintage Notions by Amy Barickman,
it has a lot of different block, making it interesting.

Overall I am pleased with the result,
but I am taking a little break from paper piecing...

And I am keeping it for myself!

Happy sewing!

I love it! My favorite part is how the green fabric really looks draped hanging down.
