Hexagon Table Runner......#3

English Paper Pieced.....Hexagons

I enjoy a hand piecing project when we travel,

so I am putting together a 

take-a-long table runner.

After all of the paper hexagons are covered with 

fabric, I put down a white piece of fabric and

arrange the table runner...

This is my third table runner,

and I still enjoy the process.

The pieces are all arranged,

but not sewn together just yet...

I pin each hexagon to the fabric base.

They will live on this fabric until they

are hand pieced together.

The fabric will not remain under the hexagons.

Once they are all pinned down,

this becomes a portable project and

the hexagons will stay in the proper order

for stitching.

If you have never made one of these,

there are a lot of online tutorials out there...

Once you make one,

you will wonder how you got along without it.

I caught the Bowl bug...

This is the third Fabric Wrapped Bowl 

this week...

After 2 oval bowls,

I made a round bowl:

I rolled the top edge of the bowl..... down

I like it !

I put all of the bowl making supplies 

away in the closet.

I need to move on.

Fabric Wrapped Clothesline.....Bowl

I haven't made a 

fabric wrapped clothesline bowl

in 5 years...

I thought I would give it a try:

Just as much FUN as I remembered !

The fabric strips are a few 

batiks and some hand dyes...

The oval shape was easier than I remembered...

It is rainy, dark and gloomy outside...

these colors cheered me up !

This one will replace the one I made 5 years ago 

that we store our remote controls in.
