Sunday Sewing - Hexie Coasters

Not a lot of time for sewing today as I need to do some housework and an hour or two of work (and I'm so thankful that I can work from home and not have to go into the office).  So I needed something quick and easy to sew.  I remembered a tutorial that Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl shared last month for hexie coasters.  You can see Yvonne's coasters here, and this is the original tutorial.

I don't have hexie/honeycomb precuts, but I had a small charm pack (can't remember where I got it).  The prints more or less went together.

So I pulled out my Hex N More ruler by Jaybird Quilts and started making hexies.  I was able to get a 4.5-inch hexie from each 5-inch charm.

It really is an easy project -- lay out the pieces, sew around the edges, and turn inside out.  And ta're finished.

I don't know what size a hexie precut is, but this size seems to work -- my glass had plenty of room.

Time to get the laundry out of the dryer and do some work.  And then I plan to make more hexie coasters this evening.

  1. They are so fun and addicting to make! I always have to cut my hexies, too, and if the glass fits, well, then it's a perfect size. :)

  2. Super cute! You're blogging right along. :)

  3. What a cute quick idea! May have to make some.
