All the cool people, particularly hip moms, are taking up EPP. No, it’s not a new diet or exercise regimen, it’s English Paper Piecing – a technique used to make hexagons (aka hexies). Hand sewing is mobile so can go from the doctor’s office to the soccer field allowing you to get lots down while you wait. Keep going and you can make a quilt (like a Grandmother’s Flower Garden), embellish a garment or bag, or really anything you dream up.
Heather of The Sewing Loft caught the bug while deciding what to do with small bits of fabric scraps she had leftover from other projects. She shares a free hexie template download on her blog. Also included in her post is a project with full instructions. Go HERE to learn more.
