The English Paper Piecing Tote Bag
Embark on a Creative Journey with our English Paper Piecing Tote Bag Craft Kit!
Embrace the fusion of traditional English paper piecing and contemporary design as you embark on the journey of crafting your very own appliqued tote bag that seamlessly combines style and functionality.
English paper piecing is a method of patchwork which originated in England in the 1770s where fabric is wrapped around fabric shapes made of thin paper cardboard or heavy paper.
Once the shapes are wrapped and ready, the sewer will hand sew the shapes together one at a time until the shapes become an intricate design. The paper or cardboard is removed once the shape has been sewn to another shape on all sides.
Inside your box you'll discover the following essentials waiting to spark your creativity:
- White Canvas Tote Bag
- 2 x Sewing Needles
- 3 x A4 Paper Piecing Design Templates
- White Sewing Thread
- Jade, Navy, Light Grey, and Royal Blue Fabric Pieces
You'll also have your handy step-by-step photo instructions and online video tutorial to navigate the crafting process with ease.
You'll just need:
- Sewing pins (optional)
- Iron (optional)
For those moments when you're in need of some extra inspiration, we're including three beautiful postcards that will fuel your creative fire and make a stunning addition to your pinboard.
