Shop Update – Hexie Purses

I’ve been working on something a little different this past week for the shop. As you may already know I’m a ‘little’ obsessed with hexagons, and after finishing my hexie mat the other week it got the brain cogs churning. I have so many fabric scraps that I can never bear to part with and they are starting to take over the sewing room, so what better way to stop these little beauties going to waste then to turn them into little hexagons!

It’s not the first time I’ve fussy cut hexagons (fussy cut is basically picking a certain pattern on the fabric that you want to be your hexagon, it looks really effective but is quite wasteful, don’t forget to add 1/4inch seam allowance around the hexagon.) but the pieces have always been too big for the projects I have in mind. I do have a pack of 1/2 inch hexies but was a little put off at how small they were and how fiddly it would be! However when the hexies are this small there is only one thing for it a fabric glue pen! Just a little dab of the glue in each corner holds it in place, it does make it a little less fiddly.

These hexies are slightly larger at 1 inch and a lot easier to work with.

  

Apart from the grey one which will be listed later today they are all now available to buy in my Etsy shop.
