Because Unikitty

Have you seen The Lego Movie? Yes? Awesome. No? Go. Do it. Now. Like, for reals, dude. It's Awesome. Actually, everything is awesome. (*insert cheesy grin here*)

To say I fell in love with the characters in this movie is an understatement. They are all AWESOME. For reals. Wicked awesome. So... being a fan of paper piecing, I figured I should create some of them in paper form. Thus, the Unikitty wall hanging.

Yup. This totally happened.

Uni-Kitty Wall Hanging


It's not a card. It could be, but I wanted to make her bigger. And awesome. The background paper is from the Echo Park Ombre 12x12 Collection Kit. I love these papers because they are just awesome basics. I used a variety of cardstocks for the paper piecing and then stamped the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps RAD stamp set (which is awesome). It is all done by hand. No machines involved. A few enamel dots and a frame finished it off! Creating the pattern was honestly the hardest part, and, due to the straight lines (thanks, Lego!), that was actually fairly simple!

I did use a grey Copic to outline the pieces to give them a bit of a foundation, as well. Seriously, though, you guys. This was a super fun project. She was a BLAST to create!



Have an AWESOME!
