Inklingo makes this clue so easy, it almost feels like a classic diamond heist—well planned, quickly executed, clever and fun.

In fact, this clue is just like A Fish Called Wanda but with a slightly simpler plot, fewer fish, and a G rating.
Print the shapes on fabric, cut rows (single layer), and then stack the rows to cut several layers at a time.
The sewing goes fast (hand or machine), so you will have time to watch . . .

Yes, Whiskers, Cathi is a show-off, in the best possible way! I want to see photos of your COTDN too. Aren’t Cathi’s fabulous!!!
I’ve been wondering about the timing of the next clue, but I haven’t a clue how I’m going to tackle the previous one. Life–it gets in the way!
And Cathi……….. such a show-off!
This is going to be a wonderful clue to put together! My printer will be busy in just a few minutes – this is the perfect hand piecing to be doing while watching baseball games and the Masters!!
