Small Hexie Pincushion...

Jindi found this post languishing as a draft yesterday...who knew I'd actually attempted a blog post!  So moving on...

I enjoyed making the pincushion for Demi so much it spurred me on to finally make my own using the gorgeous fabrics gifted along with the pattern. The fabric strips were sufficient to make a pincushion the same size as I made Demi, which I think was about 7" across (I forgot to measure it), but I really want to also include some of the fabric in a particular quilt.  The size is determined by the size papers so problem solved...made it smaller... 
2 1/2" across, it fits so neatly in my hand it could double as a stress ball (pins removed!!) on a bad day!
I just love the raspberry and duck egg blue fabrics.

Happy Stitching...
