hexagon pincushion tutorial

Making hexagons is addictive. Once you start making, you want to make more and more. I made a pincushion with little hexagon flower. It is such a relaxing and satisfying little project of english paper piecing to work on. This is a quick little project and it is enjoyable to make.

I prepared a tutorial for this little project which is quick and easy to make. It would also be a nice gift.


  • First start with preparing your hexagon flower. I used 1 inch hexagons for the hexagon flower. If you are new to english paper piecing, check out this How to make hexagon flower tutorial. This will guide you through the process of making hexagon flower. After making hexagon flower, press with iron and remove the papers.
  • Cut out two pieces of fabric measuring 5 inch.
  • Pin your hexagon flower in place to the right side of the front fabric.
  • Hand stitch the hexagon flower to the center of the pincushion front. You stitch in a way that your stitches cannot be seen.

  • Putting the second square on the front one, right sides looking at each other, machine sew the four sides of the squares together. Do not forget to leave 1 inch unsewn. You will turn the right side from here.

  • Turn the pincushion to the right side and push the points out.
  • Stuff firmly with the stuffing of your choice. I used fibre here. Then hand stitch the gap closed.

Your pincushion is ready to use. The hexagon pincushion is fun and super easy to make. Enjoy it.
