English Paper Piecing (EPP) is a popular and easy method of creating beautiful, hand-sewn patchwork designs. The fabric is cut and folded over a paper template and the resulting shapes are stitched together by hand, making it ideal for sewing whether you're on the move, or at home.

Successful and established author Alistair Macdonald provides 18 fabulous projects, including a lovely baby's play mat, a stylish gentleman's scarf, a useful hobby bag, a tea cosy, a gorgeous tote bag and a make-up purse. All the patchwork is done by hand sewing, using the English Paper Piecing method in fresh, bright cottons and with clear, step-by-step instructions and beautiful photographs. There is some machine sewing for putting projects together, but you can hand sew if you prefer.

Actual size templates for every project are included.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The best book for beginner sewists, which uses the simple art of paper piecing that everyone can do.

18 wonderful projects with simple step by step instructions, and with the inclusion of templates makes this a book for mindful sewing.

Paper piecing is a hand sewing technique, which involves cutting shapes of paper and wrapping your chosen fabric and stitching them together to make stunning and useful items. Cushions, bags book covers and quilts

I actually started paper piecing when I first learned to sew, and started making a small lap quilt which when I eventually finished was a king-sized quilt which now adorns my bed and is very warm... This craft is very addictive so be warned.
