pattern: hexagon embroidery
I've loved teeny tiny embroidery for a long time, so it seems like a perfection thing to combine with my new love of hexagons. In my shop I have several sets of teeny tiny patterns, but I've also made some to perfectly fit in my hexagon pieces, and I'm sharing them here today!
If you're adding these paper-pieced hexies, there are two ways I recommend for stitching these. The first method is better, but the second will work for when you only have small pieces of fabric, or want to use already made hexagons.
1) Trace and embroider the designs onto a larger piece of fabric, then center the embroidery on your hexagon piece when you go to cut out the shapes.
2) Make your hexagons, join them, and remove their paper centers. Trace a pattern onto a hexagon and stitch. Hooping your joined hexies isn't a great idea, so you may want to use stabilizer.
Of course, you really don't need to be stitching hexagons to use these patterns. You can just trace the teeny tiny motifs, or keep the entire piece together for a larger embroidery!
