Postcard Project #8 Two Tone Tumbler Kit - Shine On Charm Pack
What a sweet way to make someone's day! Gift them a lovely little organza pouch containing an easy English Paper Piecing project. Or, pick-up one or two for yourself! A lovely hand-work project you can make as big or small as you like depending on the number of pieces you use.
The acrylic templates are made with trimmed corners to help you match pieces and have holes at the intersection points. To ensure frustration-free marking, we've included a hard, No. 2 pencil and a special sharpener that can be set to "long point". Use the long point setting to create a point that fits the template holes and easily reaches the fabric to leave a precise dot. Trace around the template, make the dots, then slide the template over to draw the line connecting the dots. Cut out the shapes on the lines using scissors or a rotary cutter. Hand sew or machine sew the pieces together matching the dots along the drawn lines.
