Embroidery Sampler with Hexagons!

hexagon embroidery sampler

Embroidery Samplers are a fun way of practising hand embroidery stitches.

With this Hexagon Template you start with a blank canvas and fill in each small hexagon with a stitch of your choice. You will love how the design starts to come together as you get better and better with each stitch that you make!

Traditional quilting designs and techniques are a real favourite of mine, you can’t get more traditional than hexagons – they feature often in many patterns and are really versatile.

I decided to transfer my love of Hexies to my love of hand embroidery and create a sampler with some gorgeous threads.

If you would like to create your own sampler there is a link to the FREE Hexagon template at the end of this post.

Decide on your stitches or make it up as you go…

Sometimes it is more fun to make things up as you go so that’s what I decided to do!

These little hexies are perfect to practice so many different stitches on.

I played around with lots of different stitches including French Knots, back stitch, seed stitch, chain stitch and long stitch for a bit of variety. Lots of colours and textures add to the delight.

Embroidery Stitch Ideas

If you need some inspiration or a bit of a ‘How To’ for different stitches, why not treat yourself to the Hexagon Sampler Kit which shows you in detail how to stitch 20 different stitches into your hexagons.

Take a look at my fabulous Pinterest Board featuring lots of stitch tutorials.

If you like to learn through books then the ones I personally recommend as I have them myself and have found them invaluable and easy to follow are The Embroidery Stitch Bible and The RSN Book of Embroidery.

As you can see when my sampler was all stitched up and the Sticky Fabri Solvy had been washed away it looks amaaazing!

Happy Stitching!

    WHat kind of printer does the Sulky Sticky Fabri Solvy Stabiliser require? Can it work with an HP black and white laser printer or only an inkjet? THANK YOU!

    I used to quilt before my kids came along (now I don’t have the space!) that’s why I just love quilt patterns and trying to replicate them in to something I can embroider. My next collection is going to be Baltimore inspired designs which I am so excited to get on with.

    Love hexies. I also quilt and have a Gramma’s flower garden in progress. Embroidery is fairly new for me. So excited to try this.
