project: psl embroidered hexagon pin

PSL Hexagon Pin


I love pumpkin spice lattes. I also love embroidery and making paper-pieced hexagons. This project brings those things together. Plus, who wouldn't want to wear their favorite fall beverage on their jacket? Okay, so maybe that sounds a bit like you've spilled it down your front. But you know what I mean...

Today I'm also doing a bit of a post swap with Nancy from Do Small Things with Love. Be sure to visit her to make another pumpkin project using felt!

PSL Hexagon Pin

Here's what you need:

Finished embroidery of the PSL (but you could use anything small)
Card stock hexagon shape (Mine is about 1-1/8 on each side)
Needle and thread
Felt
Embroidery floss
Pin back

Here's what you do:

Pin the hexagon template onto the back of your finished embroidery. Make sure it's centered and pointing in the direction you want. Cut out around the hexagon and make a paper pieced hexie. See my instructions here.

PSL Hexagon Pin

Remove the paper from the hexagon, and pin it onto your felt. Use embroidery floss to stitch the embroidered hexie to the felt. I used blanket stitch (I've been on a roll lately, whereas sometimes I fail at this stitch!), but you could use any stitch you like.

Cut out around the shape, leaving a bit of felt showing.

Stitch the pin back to the back, stitching through the felt only.

Now, this is a little backwards from how I would usually do this. Normally, I would cut out the felt shape, stitch the pin back on, then attach the hexie. You can do that, but I wanted to make sure my felt and hexagon matched up perfectly, so this was the better option.

Pin your PSL onto your favorite denim jacket and you're officially ready for fall!

  11. OK, Mollie, here it is, 2014, and I am just making your pin. I decided to try it on brown fabric, and at first, I wasn't too sure I liked it, but then after it dried (I used Stik-N-Washaway), I loved it. The funny part of it all, is that I have tried drawing cups, and I can never get them right....and it was this way with stitching a cup too! You will see how the edges are not the same. I ended up using two pieces of the felt for more body. This was such a quick and fun project! I need to make more now! Not sure if this link will work to the photo, but if it doesn't I will be posting on my blog after the recipient gets it! https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-3N3XZkp8E_Y/VA8Nf2U3kII/AAAAAAAAOHw/qWxAiXSxiDE/w288-h162-p-no/IMG_20140909_102341833.jpg
