When I first saw Violet Craft's english paper pieced lion pattern I knew I had to make one for my oldest, Leigh Anne. She's the one I plan to go to Africa with... and she loves warm oranges & pinks... perfect!
I have to tell you how very impressed I was with Violet Craft's pattern. It's so well laid out, the epp pieces are sturdy and well labeled. It was a delight to make. It took me quite a while to make, working in spurts, and I love the results! At 20" square, it was perfect for a pillow for Leigh Anne's New York apartment.
I used an orange grunge for the envelope back, and a ric rac accent...
It was easy to mail to NYC in a padded envelope, and send a pillow form via amazon. I couldn't wait until she received it so I could share it with you. The pieces held up so well, I could easily use them again. Maybe a lion for me too? We'll see.
