You who follow me regular knows that I have been spending a lot of time this year making soccer / football cards and I am affraid I am not done with that theme yet. However after making five or six of those cards I needed a change from what I was doing. After all there are only a limited supply of sporty soccer paper to find. I had a "new" sweater prepared for this guy in a lovely blue striped version. The my olders come a long and says : - He can't look that way, that is not a real team sweater. So time to rethink what I was doing and I look through my dies and put them in some order. During that time I found of Joanna Sheens new patchwork dies, and guess what came to mind?
Yep that's right. One of the dies is perfect for making soccer balls! Took a while to cut all the pieces but if the theme is paper piecing, then you take one for the team how to speak. So I made a ball used another die to cut it into a round shape and then cut some stripes of grass to give Mr Soccer player some ground to put his feet on. I also coloured the sweater in a nice red colour, there is plenty of read teams out there, Bayern München for example and a favourite player of my kids is Ribéry. Even got the number right even if the shorts isn't a total match. It would have been to much red. LoL My little guy is coloured with my Letraset family and I got to try a new way of paper piecing even if it's not the first way you might think of. But as I have covered the whole base of my card, I hope that it still will count as paper piecing. After all it's all about building a pattern with the help of papers.
