We shared this tutorial a couple of weeks ago on The Crafting Chicks website, but you still have time to make a few before Christmas! And, if you are anything like me these days you are spending half the day in carpool lines and/or lessons or appointments with your kiddos….so you can take some craft supplies with you in the car.
This tutorial is for a form of quilting called English Paper Piecing but don’t be afraid of the title…it is a super simple form of handstitching or sewing fabric around hexagon papers!
Let’s get started……
*Green fabric square 3″ by 3″
*Hexagon Paper Pieces (6)
*Red pom pom trim
*Scrap of red yarn
*18″ by 18″ white fabric square
Step 1: Make your 6 EPP (English Paper Piecing) hexagons. I actually made most of this wreath while two of my kiddos were getting their cavities filled. If you need a TUTORIAL for making the HEXAGONS, CLICK HERE. Stitch the 6 hexagons together in a wreath shape.
Step 2: After all 6 of your hexagons are sewn together, take the papers out and turn the wreath over.
Step 3: Place the hexagon wreath onto the 18″ by 18″ white fabric and stitch it down onto your fabric.
Step 4: Once your wreath is stitched down you can insert it into your embroidery hoop. I then used bit of a red yard scrap made into a bow at the bottom of the wreath.
Step 5: Add some small pom pom trim to the embroidery hoop and you are done!
