There was a charm size piece of Little Red Riding Hood fabric by Tasha Noel in the package that Gina sent me. I have been looking at this line for a long time but never bought it. It really is pretty.
So when I saw this tiny piece in the parcel, I got very excited and felt like making something with this fabric right away. I thought of making some fabric covered buttons first but then another idea came to my mind. Hexagons. Tiny hexagons.
I managed to make just two when a clear picture grew in my head. A sewing set of course! One hexagon for a pincushion and one for a needle book. The rest was just quick machine sewing. I think I am in love with red and pink combination.
I used a backstitch in brown to outline the hexagons and to separate the pink cotton fabric from linen. Then I added tiny running stitches in dark red to emphasise the flowers and toadstools inside the hexagons.
This project didn't take much time to complete but it was a very spontaneous and enjoyable process. I like making hexagons and stitching them together and applying them on to other fabrics. It's a lovely combination of hand and machine sewing. Have a wonderful week everybody! Larisa xox
