Super Cute Paper Piecing ~ Colored Pencil Pouch

I am so excited to start sharing projects from my new book ~ "Super Cute Paper Piecing"!
Every week I will share a project from my book until the book releases in November.

All info about the book can be found on my blog [HERE]

This is the first project in the book.  This cute colored pencil is one pattern unit, so it is the perfect project to paper piece.

I love that the patchwork bottom panel has fussy cuts to take advantage of the cute prints!

The body of the pouch is Essex Linen in color Flax.  Essex Linen is a favorite of mine and you will see it used in half of the projects in the book.

The red polka dot is from Moda ~ Essential Dots.
Polka dots are another one of my favorite prints for fussy cut projects.

In the book you will find a "How To" section which will teach you to Paper Piece, and Fussy Cut.
Both skills are important to master to make this first project.

You can also find a "Fussy Cutting" tutorial [HERE]

Happy Sewing
