I started this paper-pieced cottage last month but only just got around to finishing it off today - specifically the envelope and lining. This pretty image from WMS Sewing Box Hugs lends itself so well to paper piecing and I had been meaning to try this for some time. I used one of the Spellbinders Postage Stamps Square dies to cut a mat - I always think it has that fabric swatch look which complements the theme sew very nicely. I used a fine liner to "stitch" around the outside of the gingham because my sewing machine needs repairs. I placed a sheet of plaid DP on the inside and added some little buttons down the left side. These were cut with the smallest of the PTI Bitty Buttons Stack dies. I glossed them up a little for some added shine.
