Thanks Coach!

I just love this little guy!  I found him over at Paper Piecings by Nikki.

He's easy to paper piece, but for anyone who hasn't tried it yet, here's some help:

Like Nikki says "paper piecing is just the cutting various shapes of paper and then piecing them all back together like a puzzle."  Before I piece them back together I chalk the edges (a shade darker than the paper) and use markers for detail if needed.
Do this to all the pieces.

Be sure and print a full size picture of what you're making and use it as a guide for where to put back all the pieces.  I actually put the picture in a sandwich bag ( it keeps the adhesive off the picture) and work right on top of it.
Have fun and give paperpiecing a try!
