I stitched up this vintage hexagon pin cushion yesterday just so I'd have something to share today. This is my very first hexagon project ever, which is kind of hard to believe.
a LOT of them!) I even found a sand paper template and a hand drawn cardboard template amid the fabric pieces. Super fun!
It is filled with crushed walnut shells, so it has a lovely weight to it. (Crushed walnut shells can be found in the reptile section of pet stores.) To finish I usually just whip stitch the opening closed and it's sufficient. This time I used a ladder stitch and silk thread to close the opening instead. The combination of the two made the final seam nearly invisible!! I'm pleased as punch!
The pin cushion is 4 1/2" finished. And you guessed it....I LOVE it!!!
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Happy Friday!
