hexagon situpon pattern by bonnie christine

the next pattern on my list to share with you is called the hexagon situpon, and it’s my all time favorite project! mom and i had so much fun making this pattern and sewing the samples (for more on our collaboration, you can read this post). i keep the two shown above stacked in our living room, and they are so useful! they provide extra seating for guests, or a comfy foot rest for us while we lounge (especially useful if you’re short, like me!). after stuffing them pretty tightly, they are comfy and cushy, but still keep their shape. of course, bear loves to jump on them, too!

another reason i love the hexagon situpon is because it’s an easy way to add a pop of color to a room, and it’s a great way to show off your favorite fabrics! this sewing pattern is beginner friendly, though a little sewing experience would be beneficial. we chose to do straight line quilting for ours (we include an easy tip for this in the pattern), but you could choose to do any quilting you like, or none at all! it can be easily made in a full day of sewing, or in two afternoons. we used both winged and sweet as honey for the ones shown here, but of course you can use any fabric you like!

which reminds me, do you use spotify? they have a music station called ‘the perfect crafternoon‘. it’s great for all those crafty afternoons!
