Sammy the Snail

This has been a long time coming, but I designed another paper pieced block for you guys.

Its a wee snail.
I think he's rather cute.

In my head his snail shell is in ombre colours, starting light in the centre and getting darker as it radiates out.

Other times I see his shell is in rainbow colours.

As usual I asked a couple of girls to test the pattern.

As usual, Chrissie D was the first to put her hand up and she did an awesome job.

Jeifner was a new pattern tester for me. Not only did she come back with some awesome feedback, but she also suggested a great way to improve the pattern.

Thank you Chrissie and Jeifner for your great work!

If you're looking at the pattern and thinking “You've got to be kidding, all those eensy teensy little pieces!”, then please don't be put off till you hear what Jennifer had to say:

"When I first saw all those tiny little pieces I was scared! I had never paper pieced such small pieces. I thought 'this can't be real, this can't be right.' Hahaha, they were real and they were right. And they were so simple to sew with your pattern. I was so impressed that you made it so usable and that I was able to do it!"

So what are you waiting for? Go and paper piece yourself a snail!

The pattern is available from my Craftsy store now. I will make it free for at least the first month and then I'll probably start charging for it.
