Here’s a tip I just learned about and have started incorporating into my paper piecing collections.

Blackout SVG files!

What are they?

A blackout file is an SVG file which contains the outline of an assembled paper piecing pattern.


This makes it extra easy to assemble the patterns! Plus, makes the whole thing much sturdier!

Here’s a sample of one my latest paper piecing buddies and its blackout file:



Send the pieces including the blackout file to cut and assemble the pattern by laying each piece over the blackout using the outlines as a guide!


Happy Scrapping!
