Pretty Hexie Pincushion

I thought I would start the year with making something pretty, and you can’t get much prettier with sweet floral Tilda fabrics.

Choices choices

It all started when I came across this little hexie flower in my sewing box, the hardest part was deciding what backing fabric to use. I was drawn to both the dots and the floral, the dots really made it pop but the floral is so pretty! So I put it to some clever ladies on Instagram who all agreed on the dots.

So although technically I started this last year, I finished it in this year and so I think it is allowed to be called my first make of 2015. Here is to many more pretty makes this year!
