Here's another Zakka project that was really straightforward for a paper-piecing-phobe like myself. As often happens, choosing the fabrics I wanted to use took the most time. Beings a trivet is used in the kitchen, I thought a nice linen teapot would be perfect.
This video was helpful, even though I still wasn't 100% happy with my results. If you have some super tips on technique, I'd definitely appreciate hearing.
But overall I really enjoyed this project and am super pleased with it. I am also really enjoying all the different variations in the flickr group! Folks are going totally scrappy, using solids, minimizing the number of fabrics - each giving a different but delightful look. Nice!
