been enjoying stitching my Sew
Over the Rainbow hexie project that I'm offering
though my Victoriana
Quilt Designs Facebook Page.
To go along with my hexie sewing kit, I had
to make myself this Hexie Pincushion :)
It was simple,
and can be made in whatever size hexie templates you
have to work with.
punch had a smaller size hexagon (measurements shown
in diagram), which I used for mine.
Prepare yourself 8 hexies, using the same method we
are using for the Sew
Over the Rainbow project - 6 for your sides, and
one each for the top and bottom center.
Stitch them together as shown in the diagram.
Working with the right sides inside, stitch the edges
together following the number plan (#1 to #10) in the
diagram above. Fold the hexies in half when needed to
help align the next edges.
the cardstock when your hexie has all the sides sewn.
When you get to 11*, remove all the remaining cardstocks,
and carefully turn your pincushion right side out, gently
pushing out the corners.
stuff the pincushion through the one remaining open
Tip: I cut up scrap cotton batting with pinking shears
into small bits.
you feel it's stuffed as full as you like, blindstitch
the final seam closed.
