Freezer Paper Technique

Advanced Beginner -- Diana Bradley -- $30
This is a kind of foundation piecing. It’s like paper piecing, except you don’t sew through the paper so there is no paper to rip off afterwards. And the pattern is on the top and the back of the paper so there is no guessing where to line things up. And you can use a normal stitch length so if you make a mistake you can use a seam ripper and take it out no problem. Diana coverts all traditional paper piecing to this freezer paper method because it is easier and she HATES pulling out all those little bits of paper. She can convert you too.
