Last week it was a turkey block, this week it is the Moss and Lotus Tomte SAL over on Instagram. The thing is, I wanted to join in when it was going on last year, and I didn't. So silly of me! I wasn't going to make the same mistake twice...
Patterns printed and fabric pulled!
It quickly became apparent that my paper-piecing skills are a bit rusty - especially since the first block I chose began with the teeniest pieces! So Nes Tomte was started twice... But he turned out just fine!
And how about some Tiny Tomte?
I am a terribly messy paper piecer...
But it is so fun to see these creations come alive from paper, fabric, and thread!
Peder Tomte has joined the village, along with a lovely pine tree!
There are lots more Tomte to make in my pattern bundle - maybe this afternoon I will sew them up a house! You can find this Sew Along on Instagram @mossandlotus and there's a bunch of merry sewing to be seen at #mossandlotustomtesal2018!
Hope you are having a lovely Sunday! I'll be sharing over at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
Cute! You holder is a handsome dude, too.
Love your Tomtes! It's such a fun, fun project.
I've been seeing these on IG and get a little thrill every time I see your blocks! They couldn't be more adorable and perfect. Paper piecing is so much fun! My space can become a disaster when I paper piece too!
I am so easily distracted too and I need to buckle down and use my scraps this year and use bigger pieces to use them up - I do a lot of scrappy projects but the pieces used are small. I like these little Tomte blocks
These blocks are so adorable! I think you're right, they need a house.
I love that blue grunge you're using for the background on these little guys. They are darling! :)
I think we'd work together well, chasing squirrels and whatnot. My sewing space looks much like yours, messier I think though, when I paper piece. Such fun though! It's going to be a tomte sewing day here!
These blocks are so darn cute! I am trying to resist but it is getting hard. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
How cute! Wish I liked paper piecing.
Very cute. I am in love with your background fabric.
These are so cute! I had never seen them before; thanks for showing them. I especially like the green one; he's so quirky :)
So you got bitten my the Tomte bug! It seems they are popping up all over-they might just grow on my yet!! I love your grunge background for them.
Your Tomtes are great! The fabric in the background is perfect!!!
Tomte is a new word for me but your little gnome-like figures are super cute. Chasing squirrels is fun. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Those are just adorable! How fun you’re getting to enjoy it so much. I’m a messy paper-piecer too.
ADORABLE! I've not seen these before. Guess it's time to learn how to paper piece!
My daughter's doing those. So cute. Happy Thanksgiving.
