Lily and I made things today

I’m trying not to add to my in-progress projects, but I couldn’t help myself and jumped into hexies this evening. Thanks to this great tutorial it all came together quite nicely, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to continue on with this adorable hexie travel kit once I make some more!

And Lily couldn’t help herself and jumped into her Sewing School book, too. She picked the apple pincushion as her first project, and after some encouragement she cut the felt all by herself (she REALLY wanted me to do that for her), and then I only had to thread the needle and tie the knots for her; she did the rest!

    I’m so glad you’ve jumped on the hexie bandwagon! I want to make one of those travel kits too!
    And that pincushion is adorable! That’s so awesome that Lily’s doing so much on her own! Evie still needs a lot of help.

    • Lily still needs help often too, but it’s nice that she eventually tried to cut it out herself instead of giving up. She’s a perfectionist and that stops her from even starting a lot of the time.
