    PLEASE don’t have the iron so close! 🙁 It’s really distracting (and dangerous). Keep it turned away from you or rest it to the far side of the workspace.

    Por favor me responda: Que espécie de papel devo usar? Costurei com papel sulfite, ficou lindo para quem nunca costurou como eu, porém na hora de destacar o papel a linha da costura saiu junto. Precisei recosturar algumas partes novamente. Achei excelente esse método, porém estou com essa dificuldade com o papel. Bjo e Obrigada. Elis

      Hi, Elisete. For the string piecing method using paper, any kind of copy or printer paper works best. Copy paper is thicker than papers like tissue or tracing, so they will hold up better while you are stitching, but still be easy enough to tear away when you are done.

    OMG…the iron, I kept watching the iron and your hand and arm. Yikes, please move it away. This is a great tutorial except for the iron being too close.

    Thank you for your great tutorial! I had not heard of the String Piecing Technique before, and I can not wait to try it. I especially loved the idea of doing pot holders and I loved the idea of using triangles to make hexagon shapes that would be great for place mats. The possibilities are endless. Thank you for all the inspiration.

      Hello Suzanne!

      It would seem she sewed the hot-pad together using the string piecing technique, then added a layer of protection (fleece with metal in it) before quilting the entire thing together.

      Thank you!
