Hexagon Pillow


My first finished hex project! I loved the hand sewing on this. It's really not as hard as it looks either. There are lots of good tutorials. I used this one. The author even links you to a cool tool that allows you to download and print hex templates in a variety of sizes!
I paired my hexes with a nice linen-look cotton in a neutral color. I interfaced my front to protect the hex seams and prevent any distortion. The back is a simple envelope closure. The pillow is 12x16, and it available in my etsy shop. I really want to keep this one, but these super gorgeous colors and fabrics don't match any of my decor :(.

Lovely! I definitely have hexagons on my list of things to try but I have no idea when I'll get around to them. Your pillow shouts to me, "Sooner, rather than later!"

This is awesome. I so admire people who make hexagon stuff, it just looks impossible to someone as sloppy and impatient as I am. I love the fabrics you chose, too!

Beautiful!

One of these days I'm going to try hexagons. I'm getting an ever increasing list.

This is beautiful! Love the colors. I've been wanting to try my hand at hexagons, & your pillow might just be the inspiration I've been needing to push me over the edge! :)
