(„Hex, Hex“ is the spell of Bibi Blocksberg, the loved by German kids little witch. „Hexe“ = witch.
Don’t be scared, I am not about to bewitch you. And I will not tell about Halloween…
At the weekend I tryed a new to me patchworking technique: Hexies.
All you need is a lot of fabric hexagons, the same number of paper hexagons (a little bit smaller), needle and thread, no sewing machine… The best to sit in the garden, and not in the sewing room.
Turn the 2 sides to the back and fix them with running stitches.
Next, sew one hexy to the other, using tiny stitches.
Here you see my very first Hexies sewed on a piece of fabric and later created a basket for little things.
A little quilt pattern on the backside…
Each of the hexies is 2.5cm.
Now I have an idea what to take with me to the beach. To prevent withdrawal symptoms when away from my sewing machine.
All I need is fitting into this tin.
Hey, is this an idea for your lazy holiday days too?
