I so rarely make things for myself, but I signed up for the Selfish Swap over at Things for Boys and it seemed like the perfect chance to make some things I’ve been putting off.
First up is a new obsession of mine, these little hexagon needle books. I’ve made three so far, one for a swap that has to stay secret for now, and one that I will be sharing soon. But the third one, this is for me!
I used this tutorial from My Three Sons and it goes so quickly. I used 1″ strips and sewed them together with a 1/4″ seam. I basted them like I normally would onto a 1.5″ hexagon template. It worked perfectly because I had some extra squares of felt from the pockets of the advent calendar I made and that was the perfect size for the inside hexagons.
I want to make these for everyone I know, they are so quick and adorable and can be customized so many ways! You will definitely be seeing more of these popping up in the next few weeks!
Awesome work! 🙂
Oh! Rebecca I love it!!!! What a great idea for a needlebook too! Gorgeous rainbow hexie 🙂 I have signed up for the selfish swap too, a brilliant excuse to actually make something for me!
I seriously can’t stop making these, they’re so easy and fun! It feels weird to sew for myself but I love it!
that’s so cute! I need a new needlebook.
