EPP (English Paper Piecing), as anyone who has tried it already knows, is highly addictive! Certainly I was hooked after folding and basting my first hexie. And now that I have had the opportunity to play with pentagons, diamonds, triangles, apple cores, and tumblers - well lets just say I am even more addicted than ever before.

After a year in "wip storage" the little yo-yos on my "yoyo pillow" had become flat as a pancake - and NOT pretty. I came up with a little trick to restore them to their puffy fluffy pre-storage selves!
(I did not take a picture of them before fluffing - sorry. I wasn't planning to share this but my daughter has strongly suggested I should! So you will have to trust me - they really didn't look pretty.)

It suddenly occurred to me while I was preparing to visit my local craft store to purchase a pillow form for the sun painted fabric pillow that I have altogether too many pillows sitting around - many unused most of the year (holiday pillows). Why not simply create a slip case type cover and pull one of those pillows out of storage!
By reusing pillows I already own, I am saving between $15.00 and $20.00 per pillow and reducing the number of pillows I have stored in the closet!!

Most of my readers know that when I am working on a project in earnest, I carry it with me almost everywhere I go to take advantage of what would otherwise be "lost" minutes! This habit is a big part of how I manage to fit as much crafty goodness into my life as I do! Generally speaking - most fiber crafts - knitting, crochet, embroidery and hand sewing - are excellent candidates! Hexies on the go - a bit more challenging! So many little bits and scraps - and hexies to corral.
