Expectant Mother


The project I would like to share with you today, uses one of our digital files, "Pregnant Couple".  This is a file you can purchase and download from your computer at home at http://cthruthewoodsclearstamps.tictail.com/. Imagine, buying our "stamps" with your nightgown on!  Digital stamps are a great way to paper piece. In case you are new to paper piecing, you just load your printer with assorted colors of cardstock and print the image out multiple times.  Then cut out clothing and body parts and "piece" them together. In this project I just wanted to use the mother's image.  I cut out her blouse and used it as a pattern to make her top, so the father's arms would not be included.  Her hair and shoes were colored in with markers. The pants were pieced in 2 pieces for dimension.  The shirt sleeve is separate and adhered over her arm for dimension.  She was created from 6 different pieces of paper.  The layout uses "Baby Bump"papers by BoBunny.
