Hexie Notebook Cover

Today is the 2nd Tuesday of the month!  And that means Scraptastic Tuesday!

It's a while since I've linked up with Nicky and Leanne. But I've actually had some time recently to play with hexie scraps!

This notebook cover fits an A5 spiral notebook and uses 36 English Paper Pieced 1" hexies, the perfect size for using up those smaller scraps.

I also experimented a little with some Aurifil 12wt wool thread.  I like the way these thicker threads sit proud on the Essex Yarn Dyed Linen.

These notebook covers come together really quickly once the hexie panel is made. And they are a 'go to present' when one of the kids needs a last minute gift for a friend.

So what are you making with your scraps?

  1. I haven't been sewing much patchwork lately as the clothes making bug has got me. Perhaps I need to make scrappy clothes now? Love this notebook cover - the wool thread adds a great detail as do those hexies and that cute button. Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday.
