Fabric Charm Packs: Part 2

20140323-202338.jpg fabric charm pack purchased from Sew in Rathmines

I made several paper hexagon templates and gathered some paper clips to try my hand at some paper piecing.


The hexagon template is placed in the centre of the fabric square.


Fold the fabric along one side of the hexagon template and anchor with a paper clip.


Continue to fold the fabric over each side of the hexagon template.

Added tip: use this pointer tool to crease and press the edges and corners of the fabric


Run a basting stitch through the fabric (avoid piercing through to the paper)


Trim the fabric.


Here’s a collection of hexagons from one charm pack. Press each hexagon and now they are ready to be paper pieced


Handsew the hexagons together, then remove the paper template carefully and press….


The possibilities are endless…The joys of hand sewing: )
