Scarlett O'hara

I am SO EXCITED to show everyone what Julio and I have been working on since just before Christmas.... a custom paper piecing of Scarlett O'hara! The sweetest woman, Miss SouthernBelle, contacted me to see if we could make her a paper piecing from Gone With the Wind. She picked out the picture and we, or should I say Julio, got to work! We thought we would have it done within days because we have done these types of paper piecing before with the Twilight ones. But that was far from the case! :) Luckily Miss SouthernBelle was the sweetest person to work with, she was so patient with us. Scarlett's face was the hard part. With being 9 inches tall, you'd think that she would be easy but her dress is so darn big, which made her face 1 inch tall! Not much room for detail. So we decided to go a bit larger and cut Scarlett out at 11 inches which made all the difference. Julio also had to tweak a few things on the face so that they would cut better! And that's it! My Pazzles sure went through a nice work out which I LOVE to see!! lol :)

I can't wait to see what our Miss SouthernBelle does with this paper piecing! I will keep you posted when she does something with it! She is an AMAZING talented scrapper, you should all check out her work... A Scraphappy Southernbelle.

Thanks Aymee for working with us so nicely...
it was such a pleasure and we look forward to the next one!






I used Diamond Glaze on the letter for a shiny look...

All ready to scrapbook... :)
**As far as the paper piecing of this Scarlett O'hara is concerned, my husband and I have put a lot of time into designing and creating this one-of-a kind paper piecing, so please, please, PLEASE, don't replicate it for resale. We consider it a piece of art and should be treated as such.

Thank you so much for all the
support, encouragement, and understanding!!
