hexie flower hoops

Blogging is such a wonderful way for me to keep track of my projects and a quick search tells me I made these hexie flowers in November 2013, back when Lois was a baby! It's amazing I didn't loose them between then and now really. 

Initially I think I planned to make a few english paper pieced flowers, to use up every teeny tiny scrap of Liberty. I made three. Small isn't really my favourite thing. 

They have been on some of my finish-a-long lists since then but only recently have I finally found something I wanted to make with them (I did think about a pincushion and possibly a cushion at one point).
I have already made a tiny embroidery hoop using one and now the other two have been appliqued and put into adorable little hoops too.

I bought the hoops from Sew Cross Handmade, these are 2" hoops but she stocks various sizes. The quality is fabulous, I highly recommend her shop!
The hoops come with wooden backs, which you can glue on to cover the back and also add a brooch pin if you chose to. I use wonderclips to hold the pieces together while the glue dries, it works a treat.

I can tick these off my Q4 FAL list now ✔

Wishing you all a great weekend! Remember to join me over on instagram on Saturday night for the craft along :)

  1. Gorgeous little hoops , liberty is far too precious to waste any scrap however tiny

  2. Those really are tiny! I sure you found just the perfect little spot to hang them too.

  3. These are very pretty! They will look gorgeous hanging in a special corner somewhere!

  4. That's a great idea, and they would be so sweet hanging on the wall too. Thanks for sharing!
