This week, I was lucky enough to test a brand new pattern by Rachael of Sew Today, Clean Tomorrow fame! She created the most adorable Hexie bowl PDF pattern that is available now over at Patterns Only. It’s a super quick sew and the pattern is very easy to follow.
(I love the Hexie Bowl pictured here with my Sleepy Cloud Pin Cushion. The pattern for the cloud is available in my store too!)
I’ve wanted to try English paper piecing and work with some hexies for a while now. So this little project was the perfect opportunity. The bowl construction is a little different to traditional paper piecing, in that you keep the paper or cardboard (used for the templates) in place, and it gives the bowl it’s shape.
My Aunt gave me a collection of stunning vintage Liberty fabric scraps a while ago, and these blue shades were the perfect choice for this project. It was lovely to use these precious fabric pieces for such a pretty piece.
If you’re looking for a great scrap busting project, that’s easy to make and perfect for a gift, then this is the pattern for you. You could fill them up with all sorts of goodies. Let me know if you make one. I’d LOVE to see it! And be sure to share your creations on the Molly and Mama facebook page. Or tag me on Instagram.
And look out for another hexie project coming very soon!
Happy stitching, Lauren x
