I finished a little pillow for my daughter. I last posted about it here.
It is all pink and perfect for a little girl.
It was made by English Paper Piecing (EPP).
As this pillow is pretty small I made the hexagons first and laid them out how I wanted. Then I sewed them all together.
I got a new lens for my camera. I have a canon EOS 450D camera and I got a canon 50mm lens. I love it for portraits and taking stationary things like craft and furniture. It seems good so far.
I tend to sew the hexagons together so they are all joined on at least one side and then I go back and do all the rest of the seams. I find this makes it easier to carry around as it becomes portable. These hexagons have 1" sides.
I love this little strawberry!
I already had a pillow and zip for this so then I worked out if it was the right size. I then made another row along one long side and then did the half hexagons to make the sides straight.
Then once I felt I had it the right size I removed the papers and ironed it all flat. I took my backing fabric and pit a zip in it and then I sewed the front and back right sides together. I didn't feel it needed quilting or lining.
Here is the side.
My daughter loves it and says it is beautiful!
