May Giveaway Day: 2015 Edition

Today is May Giveaway Day through Sew Mama Sew – click over there to enter any of several hundred giveaways through Sunday! I’m participating by sharing one of my Foundation Paper Pieced (FPP) patterns of your choice from my craftsy store, like these scissors!

Paper Pieced Scissors

A little bit about me: My name is Julia, and I’m an engineering graduate student by day/crafter of all kinds of things by night, or something like that. I especially love sewing dresses and quilts!

Today, I’m offering up one of my FPP patterns. FPP is a quilting technique that lets you get super precise points and shapes, which allows you to make all kinds of specific designs. I love designing these patterns, and I often draw up the patterns I make into pdfs that I share in my craftsy store. If you’re new to paper piecing, I’ve been told that my patterns are quite user friendly. One of the great things about FPP is that once you get the technique down, you can make pretty much anything! If you’ve never tried paper piecing and are looking for instructions, this is a good place to start!

Some of the patterns I have there right now include a pair of scissors, some Studio Ghibli characters, Captain Mal from Firefly, and left shark. In the next week or two, however, you may see some dinosaurs and molecules! Visit my shop here to see more about the patterns I have available. Check out #starsandsunshine on IG to see what others are making with the patterns!

  1. I already admired your dress on IG (that’s how I found you). My (nearly) 3 year old daughter just saw it on the screen and said, “Oh! Hey! That is a BEAUTIFUL dress!” I wholeheartedly agree!
