Default My hexagon mini "art' work journey.

Hi there,

Two weeks ago my mother an I went to a workshop to make a hexagon flower ring. We went to the workshop with the idea it was on de sewing machine. I was shocked. I have never did any hand sewing. But we went anyway.

The morning went by and I put some hexagons together. My mother learned me quick how to sew by hand.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]415692[/ATTACH] This was my first attempt. We have learned at the workshop to look at the fabric. You can make beautiful pedals using the pattern of the fabric.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]415693[/ATTACH] I went home and continued making the flowers. I was addicted. I used jeansfabric as background. Underneed the fabric is a peace of polysterene to pin the pieces easily.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]415694[/ATTACH] It grew and grew..

Yesterday I found a piece of canvas (normally used for painting). I put my flowers on the canvas and loved it. The colours are more bright.

Today I sewed the last flowers together. Know I am thinking to add some beading. But the beading lies in my parents house so I have to wait.

This was my journey of the last two weeks.

Your flowers on the canvas look like a piece of art, beautiful! You will have to find the perfect place to hang your wall art.

Hand piecing is so relaxing. I just got a copy of Jinny Beyers hand piecing manual and read it in one evening.

Love, Love those fabrics. What line are they from? Gorgeous!

The fabrics are mostly from a jellyroll from freedom fabrics. The greens are from the store I followed the workshop. I dont know which brand it is. And the bright pink I dyed myself.
