A few days ago I saw this gorgeous pillow pillow on Flickr and I started cutting out hexagons to make my own not even 5 minutes after I saw the picture.
Since my trusty assistant and I were just kicking around the house yesterday, we spent some time sewing.
That $8 yard sale table is a lot handier than I ever imagined. Jack can have his own "sewing" space. He told me he was using his "'magination" to sew. Totally freaking cute. And he "sewed" for something crazy like 2 hours! (He was momentarily sad when I took away the pins he had taken out of my pin cushion. I need to sit down with him and do some embroidery or something I guess. It appears he is ready!)
And I finished the supposedly quick and easy pillow. Sewing hexagons on the machine really does perplex me. I ended up hand basting most of it, then going back over it with the machine, one tiny seam at a time. Oh my.
It's wicked cute though.
More importantly, I finally used that Moda Swell charm pack I have been hoarding. (I bought mine at the fat quarter shop, but it looks she is sold out of that line already. Boo.)
