This was a fun craft project used to begin teaching a friend how to sew. Initially I was going to make one for her to celebrate her new journey then it occurred to me that she could make it herself.
This was the first time Daphanie was behind a sewing machine after 22 years! I am sew proud of her! She took a beginning sewing class Tuesday at Jo-Ann Fabrics. While she was satisfied I think it was a joke and I can’t wait to begin some “real” sewing with her over the next few days. She purchased some navy crepe fabric to make a first skirt. Yippeeee!!!
Since she’s not quite ready to blog, I guess I’ll have to feature her creations here at Sew Lyrically Vintage. I know you all will be there cheering her on!
Filling used for my hexie pin cushion came from my stash and it wasn’t loose and fluffy. Rather I think it was batting. I pulled and tore at it to make it looser to stuff the cushion more evenly. It’s a skosh lumpy, lol, but it does serve its purpose. Daphanie had sense enough to purchase proper fiber filling and truly it is smooth.
If you would like to make this for yourself visit Miss Penny’s website. Hexie Caddy Tutorial.
All-in-all this was a fun, quick project and I am glad Ms. Penny shared with everybody how to do this.
