I am going to make a confession right here, right now.  I have never, ever used the paper piecing technique.  I know, crazy right!  I guess there has to be a first time sometime and this challenge gave me that opportunity.  The dress, apron and shoes were all pieced using paper from the Michael’s Recollection “Basic Bold” paper pack.  I colored her skin, hair and cheeks using copics.  I strung a charm by Fashion Accessories on some leather string and attached it to her hands by poking a hole in each hand and threading the string through the hole and knotting it on the backside.

The sentiment is by Stampin’ Up Shelli’s Signature Collection – Tea Shoppe.
