SEWN-Paper "fabric"

There is something very satisfying about sewing paper. Not that I will never sew fabric again but with the right needle (denim, heavy duty) and bright thread, this could/has become addictive.

This week's project was taking more of our painted papers. Cut them into strips, piece together, cut again (and again if you want) and create a beautiful piece of patchwork.

 Yes, you can take this one step further and cut to your hexagons and piece as a lovely flower. But I have to admit, I'm enjoying this big piece of loveliness hanging in my window.

I love this! I've been addicted to paper and sewing since before I started kindergarten in 1951... hopeless. ;) I'm curious, is the paper still in the window and how is it holding up? I just hate the fade rate of most...

Oooh, the colours of this! Lovely. And yes, sewing paper is a wonderful thing.
I think you will like to know that I am commenting from MY office right now, haha. Have a good day!
