First Actual Sewing Project of the Month

I preciously wrote that I was going to tackle a tissue box cover for my oldest son's classroom.  Needless to say, I didn't get to it.  It is still on the list of things to do and will hopefully be completed soon.  I did put together my hexagon sewing kit (I think I have everything I need in it) and actually completed some.  I was pretty impressed with how easy it was and how I was able to complete some while the kids played with playdoh.

I used free templates from that I printed out on card stock.  I also punched a hole in the template as was suggested by  I then used this tutorial for completing the hexagons.  I have only made the start of a flower so far, but I plan to do more.  I love that this is a great way to use scraps, a great way to fussy cut material into easy shapes, and something that I can easily take with me or sit in front of the TV and complete.  Thanks to my friend at, I now have a new craft project to work on (not that I needed one, but it is nice to have one that is mobile).

I can't wait to make more hexies.  I can't wait to sew more!
