I do love making traditional patchwork hexagons. I love the process; drawing paper templates, pinning them to the fabric, cutting around the template, folding in the seam allowance and tacking and finally stitching them together with tiny little stitches.
The shapes grow and I feel connected to the past, all those thousands of fingers that have carried out the same actions. I find it very soothing.
I love how these brooches have come out- thay have given me another good use for my gorgeous buttons!
One or two will be appearing in my EtsyShop over the next couple of days.
