Hexie Love: Why You Should Let Hexies Take Over Your Home!

Hexies lovers, where are you at? Raise your hands if you are like me and would love to fill your house with hexies. Hexies, just like the word describes it, are pieces of any kind of material shaped as hexagons, that basically bring a modern twist to everything they are applied to. In our case, we love turning fabric into hexies and decorating any piece of home decor item with it. So, if you are looking to give your accessories, walls or mostly anything in your house a nice modern twist, hexie away with me as I show you the 5 ways you can utilize this tactic.

So to start off, I put together a list of five categories where you can let your hexie obsessions grow. 

 

1. Hexies in Pillows

Statment pillows are the must-have items. How many of us usually have a chair or a couch that left pillow-less just looks sad? A great idea to spruce up your living room or bedroom is by adding hexies to regular pillows! Here we show you two ways, either cover the entire surface with large hexies or indulge in some English Paper Piecing and decorate a white pillow with some decorative and small hexies. Click here to access the free pattern for this hexie pillow!

2. Hexies On The Wall.

This category is one of my favorites! I love hanging things on my wall and creating a gallery full of different objects that contrast in shape, size, and color. These embroidery hoops showcasing this hexie-inspired fabric is the perfect accessory to hang on a wall for everyone to see!
