    Turn and press the seem. If you use bakingpaper, the freezer paper will not cling

    Trim roughly.
    Lay the postcard on the line between a-2 and a-3 and do like you did, when you laid the postcard on the line between a-1 and a-2. Go on doing like this. Look at the pattern to be sure of the colour.
    Trim unit a.
    Do all the units like this. Always beginwith nr.1 then 2 and so on

    Put the units together with pins like
    1.this (use both the hashmarks and the seams, that must meet)

    2.
    Fasten the pins in the hashmarks first alongside the paper, then fasten the pins in the seamline the other way

    Sew the 3 last together the same way. Make the eye.
    Make some sort of frame before removing the paper.

    It could also have been like this

    Your wren is just amazing.
    I did paper piecing one day - I'm not sure when I'll get the confidence up again to try it again! I was really frazzled by the end of it all. My 3rd time was much better though. I think I might have been starting to get the hang of it!

    Jette thanks very much for this pattern. I am a paper piecing lover. Have made quite a few blocks, but NEVER USED iron on paper before. I can imagine it will be much easier to keep the shape better. Does this not make the paper piecing too thick?

    Thank you. The wren is very sweet and I will enjoy adding it to my as yet very small collection.

    I see this is a post from 2009 but it is a nice demonstration of the paperless paper piecing method using freezer paper. Well done!
