It’s finally the week to make the project that I was most excited about in Ayumi’s book: the cute cute hexagon trivet. I even made two!

I’m so not fast that it took me an hour to choose fabric out of my scrap containers. Then I cut approximate chunks out beforehand, which made the piecing simple. It was a very straighforward project, so there’s not too much to say about it.

I was chintzy as usual, and I used some not-super-pretty scrap flannel for the backs (instead of super cute fabric, like Ayumi used in the book samples). No one looks at them after I take blog pictures, anyway.

I was happy at how relatively neat the bound corners turned out. I used my usual lazy pinch-fold-fold-mark-mark-sew-sew method. Wasn’t that descriptive?

I’m glad that the Zakka 2.0 Sew Along exists, because it’s nudged me to make time for projects I normally wouldn’t have done. These scrappy things are super cute! They take longer than things I’m naturally inclined to make, but I really like them when they’re finished.
