How gorgeous are these?

I'd say pretty GORGEOUS!!!

I am not particularly a fan of batiks, green or purple but look at how stunning this combo is! GENIUS I'd say!

I changed up the way i did these. Previously when i sewed on each and every strip i sewed though the paper foundation too, but not this time.
The only time i sewed through the paper this time was when sewing the first strip on. I then folded the paper back and sewed each new strip to the last using the foundation paper as a guide for placement. A bit like this tute:

It worked really well and make the process a whole lot speedier as i could keep my stitch length at 2.6mm and it made it TONS easier to remove the papers. Yay!
