Teeny, tiny hexies

I have signed up to take part in an artist trading card (ATC) swap hosted by Ali at Very Berry Handmade. I made my first one here and enjoyed it so much that I thought I’d do another 🙂

The theme is Autumn and I’m thinking about a little tree made up of hexies, but the trading cards are only 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches so the hexies have got to be teeny tiny. Hmm I’ll give it a go but I may change my mind!

While I was searching for some free templates I came upon this site where you can get hexie templates in any size you want (as well as other shapes too).


These hexies are 0.4 inch which seem to be as small as my fingers can cope with – yes I did try to do some smaller ones but my stress levels went through the roof!

A hexie sitting on a one pound coin – tiny 🙂
All stitched up and waiting to be turned into a tree – hope it works!


I’m also starting to make another banner for my church, this one is for Advent – the season leading up to Christmas. There will be two of them, mirror images of each other and unlike the others I’ve made these will have a real ‘patchwork’ feel to them



Hope you have time to sew today 🙂

Until next time,
