McMahon Five Designs New Releases

  It's another great release day at McMahon Five Designs today! I am thrilled because I requested sewing and smocking images- well, last week we had sewing images- this week we have smocking!!!
  I tried paper piecing thru the printer with a digital image for the first time.  I did a Technique Junkies technique called Layer up for the sweet smocked baby outfit- there are 4 layers total using Basic Grey DSP (Eva).  I added stitching around the card, and 'pin stitching' around the bonnet oval- if you do fine sewing or smocking, you know pin stitching. That is a smocking design plate or pattern behind the outfit . The buttons are Mother of Pearl. Now I'll need a baby BOY smocked outfit....LOL
(Challenges for my card are at the bottom of the post today.)

Here is the remainder of the McMahon Five new releases for this week- NOTE- there is a new Breast Cancer Freebie available- and it is available in English AND Spanish.
