I really like how you listed what you used, instead of just showing the [very wonderful] finished product! :]
It helps people like me, who want to start but have no clue how, get a little more inspired.
Thanks Cheesy

Those are all lovely. I really like the way you made them - I've never thought about doing inchies any other way than one by one. Did you find it difficult to cut them out evenly afterwards?

Wink it was actually really simple, I started off by drawing a grid on the back of my paper, there's also a link somewhere on an inchie thread to a site where you can print out your own inch squared paper which is really handy if you want to save time drawing out your squares!
layer everything on, then once it's all dry cut according to the back grid.
I used embroidery scissors which aren't sharp enough for anything 'useful' now, so they're my new inchie scissors now as they go through lace perfectly! Smiley
