Hexagon Flower Pincushion
Fabric - Heather Ross Trixie
Back of pincushion- Heather Ross Strawberries
I keep them in a little tin!
Sue Daley Millners Needles
Small scissors and a needle threader!
Aurifil 80 weight thread
A hexagon flower sewn by hand using Aurifil 80 weight thread a piece of backing fabric!
(2) pieces of Pellon SF101 cut to size!
Iron the Pellon
to each back of fabric!
It will strengthen
the front side of each side!
Draw a circle on the backside
of your flower!
I used a measuring cup,
to draw a circle!
Put fabrics right sides together
and sew 1/4” inside the circle!
All the way around!
It will look like above!
Use a seam ripper to make about a 1 1/2” gap
Big enough to put your finger in!
Trim around the circle
(About a 1/4”)
Leaving room for clipping!
Clip all around the circle
and be careful not to clip the stitches!
Pin the top opening and iron!
It is easier to fill it with Walnut Shells if you use a funnel!
Fill it up and hand sew it shut!
