Linen is always my number one choice of base fabric. It combines nicely with most prints and fabrics, it gives you a chance to add some embroidered details and I have to say it feels good to touch. These beautiful little hexagons became a pretty flower and the flower landed on a linen envelope. I used Aurifil thread in red colour to add a running stitch around the flower and the edge of the flap. Can you spot these two tiny
I also made these cute minute animal hexagons and some linen ones with embroidery. I have had this fabric for ages and I still love all the different animals on it. I especially love the sheep, hedgehogs and little piggies. What do you think about my pincushion? To tell you the truth, it's a toothbrush stand that I filled with a pretty fabric ball. It's very heavy and because of that it's extremely stable, not like many other pincushions. These hexies were turned into a baby bib for my Little One, but sadly, after wearing it only once, the bib got lost in Singapore where we went on holidays a few weeks ago. I am thinking of making exactly the same one.
These ones are large 1.5" hexagons. This project was designed especially for a small piece of fabric I got from Gina of Party of Eight. A long while ago she sent me the sweetest surprise parcel with lovely bits and pieces and one of them was this sweet print with the kettle. I really wanted to showcase the beauty of this drawing. I chose Liberty Gracey Tana Lawn in pale blue to go along with it.
One evening I got carried away, after I made a felt pear I could not stop and wanted to make something else with felt. I had one label with a strawberry that I made for a particular project, but ended up not using it. So I decided to make a few matching labels. This one has berries that match the berries on the mug rug. I love making small pretty things.
It's been a busy time and I have surprised myself with how many different hexagons I have made and I have not stopped yet. Thank you for stopping by! Larisa xox
