*Patchwork Patterns 318 Blog Hop and Give Away*


I'm so happy you stopped by my blog for the Patchwork Patterns 318 Blog Hop!  Patchwork Patterns 318 is a Japanese sewing book by Kumiko Fujita.  It has recently been published by World Book Media for the first time in English!

The book is written for hand sewing but can be easily adapted to sewing on your machine using foundation paper piecing or freezer paper piecing.

I decided to make a few projects from the "Girls Night Out" section of the book.  The patterns are adorable and the perfect designs for embellishing some very practical items.
I couldn't resist making a make-up bag - perfect for the lipstick and nail polish block!

The fabrics used for the lipstick and nail polish are Cotton + Steel Mustang Collection.  The large floral is a cotton canvas designed is Ruby Star Polka dot in Pink by Melody Miller.  The background dot is Essential dots in Pink from Moda.



 The lipstick and nail polish block were enlarged to 4".  The patterns in the book are approximately
2 3/8" and are not reversed for paper piecing, so I scanned the image and used Adobe Illustrator to enlarge and reverse the image.  I added a seam to make the piecing a bit easier and numbered each section.   If you don't have Illustrator you can use Photoshop Elements as well.  Kerry has a great tutorial for sizing the blocks which you can find here.



The next project is a shoe/project bag. (Shhh.... don't tell anyone but I had an almost identical pair of pink kitten heels I wore in the early 80's : )

The shoe is made with Cotton + Steel Mustang, the bottom and top border are
 Ruby Star Polka dot in Pink by Melody Miller.  The background fabric is Essex Yarn Dyed Linen from Robert Kaufmann.


I enlarged the pattern to 8" - large enough to adorn a roomy bag - perfect for a shoe bag or project bag.  I am currently using this one for a knitting project.  It is a roomy 13" x 16"  - so it will fit a pair of long knitting needles or your favorite pink high heels : )



Now for the fun part!!!  I will be giving away one copy of Patchwork Patterns 318 compliments of World Book Media and a FQ set of Mustang from Cotton + Steel from Fat Quarter Shop!  Don't forget to take a peek at the New Cotton + Steel line at Fat Quarter Shop.

Please leave a comment below sharing whether or not you have tried foundation paper piecing.  If you have tried,  what did you make?
Give away is open to USA and International commenters.  Comments will be open until Friday 9:00 p.m Pacific Standard Time.


And.... be sure to check out the other projects on the blog hop - they are wonderful!

Good Luck!

Thank you for the giveaway and happy sewing.

    ReplyDelete

  44. I have tried paper piecing. I am considerably inept at it, unless all the pieces are identical. I successfully made a tuffet! I also made a couple of blocks for a sampler that required an awful lot of ripping and cutting new shapes. I would like to master paper piecing some day...

  63. I recently did a teapot that was a free pattern. I really struggled with the odd angled pieces but finally finished it. It is soooo beautiful. I moved along to personalizing some placemats with names for Christmas gifts. I think everyone will be thrilled when they receive them. I have your jam jars, featherweight sewing machine, summer cocktail and vintage apron from Craftsy waiting their turn. I think I'm becoming addicted. Thanks for sharing your talent on your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  64. What cute projects. I enjoy paper piecing though I'm just learning. I recently made some small Christmas stocking ornaments for my guild's charity tree and this summer I made a couple of blocks for a sampler king sized quilt. Now I want to make some fun blocks like your patterns on Craftsy.

  101. I love paper piecing! I sewed through the book Patchwork Please a couple years ago, which was my introduction to this method. I loved how paper piecing gave me more accurate seams and took away some of the annoying aspects of regular piecing (sewing on bias edges, small inaccuracies in measuring). I am so excited about this reprint.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I just finished foundation piecing 120 string blocks for two string quilts. It went pretty quickly. This book looks like it would be a great addition to any quilter's library.

  133. I have made a few blocks using paper piecing, mainly to see if I could do it! I was pretty good with the inside of the block, but forgot to add the 1/4 inch to the outside so if I ever sew that block to something else the tail of the camel will be lost! I have known about this book in Japanese for a while but was too late to get it in the original - super wonderful if I could get in the English in this drawing! Thank you for the chance!

  143. I have done one foundation paper piece project that was a sewing machine. I made 2 of them, 1 for each sister with their names on them. I was very pleased with how they came out and it wasn't really that hard.
