: this hexagon designer pillow pattern reads like a nature mosaic. Something soulful about handmade pillows that have such attention to painstaking detail. It’s an exquisite sewing pattern and it’s free.
By centering 6 identical petals, the master seamstress team at Sew4Home has orchestrated yet another winning design.
They share the sewing tutorial and instructions.
Hexagon Pillow Tutorial
It’s pretty easy. But the secret, she says, is “to cut six identical pattern pieces for the front of the pillow. It’s crucial that they are exactly the same.”
Pillow Sewing Tips
Other tips she gives are:
- Use an ½" seam allowances, and have them included in and marked on your base hexagon petal form.
- Use a good sewing machine like the Janome DC4030
- It’s optional, but consider using a zipper foot for the corners with the tassels as it gets a bit thick and tricky at each of the six corners. (My idea would be to simply add the tassels by hand, but I’m not a ‘real’ seamstress.)
