Happy Hexies

I've got a couple of hand sewing projects on the go for while I'm watching TV, so I thought I'd show you the progress on the larger one:

I actually thought ahead for this project, and drew out the design, and made some partial flowers so I could square off the edges without wasting fabric.  But I didn't think it all the way through - I have nothing left for borders or binding, so it will be the size it finishes at! (It will be about 36" wide)

One of the students at Chertsey Museum, Kay, makes dolls house items: 1/12th scale, 1/24th scale, and even 1/144th scale!!!

She has lent me a book.  My next project involves tracing and cutting hexies that only measure 1cm top to bottom - watch this space!


  1. Good luck with the mini hexies - and Happy New Year xxx

  2. 1cm hexies? Are you insane?! Happy New Year!

  3. Even with my glasses i wouldnt be able to sew 1cm hexies! Good luck. Happy new year

  4. That is amazing! And the mini-hexies look great. : )
