Hagegnom og prøvesying

Er blitt prøvesyer for Kristy, som lager mange flotte mønster for papirsøm. Den første utfordringen jeg fikk var hagegnomen. Dere kan kanskje forstå at dette ikke var det enkleste mønsteret. Heldigvis har jeg sydd papirsøm før. Ville ikke anbefale dette for en nybegynner.

I'm a lucky pattern tester for Kristy, and she makes the most fantastic paper patterns. My first challenge was this garden gnome. You can imagine that this is not the easiest pattern. Fortunately I've done some paper piecing before. I would not recommend this for beginner paper piecers.

























Det første jeg gjorde var å finne ut hvilke farger jeg skulle bruke.

I started with the fabrics, and found the colours to use.




















Anbefaler å sette delene fast med nåler etter systreken. Da kan jeg prøve om delen dekker området det skal dekke.

I recommend to use pins before I sew. Then you can find out if the fabric covers the area it should.



























Her er alle delene ferdig til sammensying.

All the pieces ready for joining.
























Men i all verden?!? Har visst vært litt for ivrig. Og det var ikke den eneste feilen heller.

What happened here?!?  Think I was a bit too eager. And this was not the only mistake.
























Men etter litt oppretting av noen småfeil, så ble gnomen nydelig. Han har foreløpig fått bare knappenålsøyne. Dette skal bli bedre når jeg monterer han senere.

After some ripping and sewing, the gnome was ready, and so sweet. He's got pins for eyes. But he will get better eyes later.

  3. love your gnome, think I will have to set myself a task for 2014 to learn paper piecing as there seem to be so many lovely things that can be done once the knack is learnt
