I made this
Oh lordy this kid is 2. And I'm proud to say that she knows what a hexagon is. My work here is done.
So, then, it's only appropriate that I made her this little pillow. I meant it to be for her doll but she's not too into that. She wants it. Can't argue with good taste.
The hexagons were pieced together during a medical conference. I detest sitting still so I bring hand sewing to keep me calm in lecture situations. I got to use a sweet little hexagon needle book that Megan made for me. She has a rocking tutorial on how to do it yourself. This is so much better than sticking my pins in a fabric scrap.
I also turned my hexagon critters into a little doll blanket. This is by far the cutest thing I've ever made. I busted it out super quick, and the piecing is quite imprecise. I really hope she likes it though. I hope that someday she will appreciate that it was made with love.
The bunny and frog were the most recent hexagon critters.
But the hedgehog is still my favorite.
I just love those little guys. Oh....I'm having a moment: hedgehog birthday cake?! Where the candles are the quills? Not so impressive if there's only two quills, but if there were, say, thirty five, that would be something. I'll return to this subject in May, no doubt.
