I’ve been looking at Tula Pink’s Hexie kits for months now. My thinking is that I would have some time to do handiwork while I wait in airports or train stations while traveling. Her kits are sooo cute, but I wasn’t too excited about the fabric choices that are still available.
I decided I needed to make my own kit! I have more than enough fabric, thread, needles, and English Paper Piecing hexagons.

Moda Candy: Bunny Hill’s Winter Wonderland, Sweetwater’s Noteworthy & Wishes, Aneela Hoey’s Posey
The Moda company was very smart about making these Moda Candy size fabric packs. Before they couldn’t use the ends after cutting layer cakes and charm packs. Another row of candy gave them more to sell and less scrap bags! With that being said, I haven’t purchased any of these, they were all gifted to me in fabric orders. Yay, for me! Perfect for hexies!

Look what fits into my Poke-A-Dots container: thimble, threaders, Wonder Clips
Paper piecing 1 inch hexagons and extra needles
All packed up and ready for travel!
All packed and ready to go! How cute it that? Next up, watching a few videos on You Tube on how to English Paper Piecing. I am pretty confident that I can figure this out! I’ve learned how to sew, quilt, paper piece, and long arm quilt in the past 4 years.
