Today is my day on the 12 Hexies Blog Hop and I've got a little tutorial for how to make a pin cushion with just 8 hexagons. Though this is my tutorial, I can't take credit for coming up with the shape/pattern of the pin cushion. I actually saw it on flickr ages ago, and in the comments of that pic, the poster referenced another blog post that she was inspired by. Really folks, it's 8 hexies joined together.. there are only so many ways to do it. But they go together so nicely and you can turn them into a really substantial pin cushion, so let's have a go at it--
my book, check out this online tutorial.
