I have been all about hexagons and EPP (English Paper Piecing) lately because I can sew for a few minutes and still feel like I accomplished something. I even have a bag packed for the car pool lane that I can pull out and stitch a few hexies together or even glue a few fabric hexies and feel like I am still getting some sewing in.
This pumkin hexagon project came out of me staring at hexies and thne finding a large sized hexagon cutter from Accuquilt. I thought it would be perfect on a linen tea towel for fall.
And here’s how you make it…
Hexagon Pumpkin Tea Towel Tutorial
*Linen Tea Towel (purchased from Hobby Lobby)
*5 inch paper hexagons
*Orange Fabric cut to 5.25 inches for a hexagons
*scrap of green fabric for the stem
*Hand needle and thread
*Orange and Green Embroidery Floss
Step 6: Using the thread, stitch down all but one side of the stem and the pumpkin hexagon. Pull out the papers. Then stitch down the last side. Lastly, use the orange and green embroidery floss to embellish the project as you wish.
And you are done!!!
We do have one more Accuquilt Project up on their blog today as well! See you there!
