I used the new Flopsey stamp set - Smooth Sailing. I love the smaller-than-usual scale with the cool sailboat. The sail just BEGS to be paper-pieced, so who am I to deny that?
I found some crazy-patterned Basic Grey patterned paper with "travel" types things on the patterns, so I went literal and used it for my little Flopsey Sailor. Paper-piecing that striped paper was NOT EASY. LOL I could barely tell where the line was. I used the soon-to-be-released Flat-Bottom Clouds and Catch a Wave Die-namics dies. LOVE them. The clouds are so cute and trendy. And of course anytime felt is involved it's doubly cute, I think. The Catch a Wave die is the PERFECT size. You can create plenty of overlapping waves.
Here is a peek inside. I used a sentiment found in the set (and another wild print from the patterned paper pack). :)
