For the love of... Hexagons!

Sometimes you get an idea and you have to implement it... That's what happened this week. I wanted to make something using the free fabric samples I picked up at the Strathcona Business Improvement Association Resource Exchange awhile ago. Plus I found tons of pillow forms last weekend while overhauling my place.

First I printed out some hexagons. No idea why but I figured hexagons would be the perfect shape for a pillow cover design.



I started cutting hexagons out of patterned and solid fabric samples.



I went a bit crazy with the hexagons.



I decided on this set of hexagons then repurposed a thrift store jacket for the front of the pillow cover.



I pinned the hexagons to the jacket then picked out a bright thread for the stitching.



Here's the pillow cover. Looks pretty good!



The stitching is funsie...



I used some old grey fabric for the back. I love using an envelope back for pillow covers. Very simple and looks good!



Here's the rundown on the pillow cover process...



This pillow is 18 inches by 12 inches. Next I'm tackling a 26 inch by 26 inch pillow cover.
