It's nice to have a small project to do while on vacation, or even just sitting outside enjoying the weather. This little hexie pincushion is a fun little project. I first saw it on facebook and fell in love with it. This pattern is part of the Sew Over The Rainbow quilt along hosted by Victoriana Quilt Designs. You can check it out on her Facebook Page. The FREE pattern can be found HERE.... Benita, Thank you for the great pattern, it's adorable when finished and you can never have too many pincushions. It would also make a cute little gift for one of your quilting buddies. So here is my spin on her awesome pattern....
|I printed up the pattern and traced out the hexie just as it printed up. You could make this|
cute little project with just about any size hexie.
|Using the hexie template I cut out several foundation|

|Cut fabric a 1/4" or so bigger than the hexie shape....|
|Wrap your fabric around and pin using sequin pins.|
(They are tiny)
|My hexies are all ready to piece together. I am using three|
different fabrics from the 'Gallery in Red' fabric line from Marcus Brothers.
|Sewing using tiny little stitches.... right sides together.|
|Here's the layout to form the pincushion.|
|Here I am sewing the 'sides' of the pincushion... remember to remove|
pins and hexie papers when all sides are 'sewn'.
|I think it's adorable with an added button!|
I hope you enjoy this cute little project.
