The little things

 This is my October PinkDoxies #bravequilter challenge. I wanted to make something that reminded me of spring and PEEPs hit the spot. I don't mind eating one or two but more than that and they are redundant.

Every piece is sewn. I do have to say I didn't leave enough fabric on some ends when I sewed. I will have to pay closer attention. I did take the time to measure the pattern pieces. I cut the pink fabric exact measurements which I WON'T do in the future.  I had one piece shift so much that I didn't have quite enough for the seam allowance.

Trimming the body. 

Attaching the ears to the head.

The original pattern is for a 2 1/2" X 5" peep. She is on the left. I enlarged 200% and she is on the right. I used white Christmas scraps for the enlarged peep.

This month i would like to try paper piecing.

 I'm participating in the Pink Doxies new link up, #BraveQuilter. As part of the link party for October, my goal is to try making one 2 1/2" X 5" block.
