Ice Princess and Figure Skate Template

I love making paper piecings. After I made the hockey skate I knew I needed to make a Figure Skate so here it is. The hard part was making a card to go with the skate! And just in case you would like to make the skate to I made a template for you. It even has the toe pick but it's hard to see in the photo. I thought the zigzag punch would make a cool border because it reminds me of the toe pick.



And if your wondering how I made the faux stitching, well I used a tool called a "tracing wheel", sewers and seamstresses use these to mark fabric. Years ago I used this tool to make stitches by loading the wheel with ink. It would leave a little ink trail of dots. Now I just run it along paper to leave an impression and it looks like stitches without a sewing machine. Pretty neat eh?
