Pablo Paper Piecing

My son loves the Backyardigans, so I decided to do a special piece for one of his LOs. (It will be in the next posting.) I found the image on Yahoo! images, then dropped it into a document to resize it. After printing, I used a pencil to trace the image on the back side to have a sort of carbon transfer, then traced the needed pieces on the selected cardstock. I used retired SU colors Brilliant Blue, Yo Yo Yellow, Bordering Blue and Barely Banana. For his propeller, I used thin satin ribbon, made a bow, then cut the tails. The image on the left is the printed image and the one of the right is the finished paper piecing. Thanks for looking! April
