Happy Tuesday ya’ll!
I hope your week is going well. I am finishing up some personal projects this week, and it feels good to make time for other things. One of these projects is a Whistle and Ivy Original embroidery pattern. I am so excited to share it! I want to give it to the intended recipient before I can share it, but tune in next week for the free pattern. I am loving this new craft and I am brimming over with ideas. Now, I just need to find the time to make them happen!
Today I am sharing the pattern I shared on Stitch and Unwind a few months ago, this fun Hexie Puff Seat Cushion crochet pattern.

What you need: (affiliate links to what I used)
CLICK HERE and get the pattern for the Simple Hexagons. Make 38 of them (for a total of 19 hexie puffs).
Pair up your hexie puffs into matching pairs. You are free to weave in your ends, but I opted to save time by simply stuffing the ends inside when I sewed them together (since you are sewing the hexies wrong sides together and the ends are on the backs). There will be more ends to weave in later, so you will be glad for the short-cut!
Place two hexagons WRONG-SIDES together (with the pretty fronts facing outwards on both sides). Slip stitch around your hexagon on five sides, going through both loops on both hexagons. Don’t cut or tie off your end. Your slip stitches should be on the front of the hexie puff. Be sure to leave the 6th side un-sewn.
Stuff your hexie puffs with a bit of stuffing through the open side, using your discretion. If you want them to lay more flat, use less stuffing; if you want them to be over-full and extra-puffy, add a bit more.
Once it’s full and puffy, slip stitch down the remaining side and weave in your ends. Repeat for all your hexie puffs until you have 19 total.
Before you begin sewing your hexie puffs together into a cushion, lay them all out making sure you made the correct amount, and that you have your color scheme arranged correctly. Be sure to check your couch cushions for that one that you SWEAR you made but can’t seem to find in your crochet bag. :|
Thread your darning needle with a length of yarn and begin sewing the hexie puffs together. There are probably several ways to do this. I found the best way is to sew them together by pushing your needle in and up between the layers, going back and forth between your two hexie puffs.
It takes a bit of practice, but it goes smoother as you go along. You will need to use several pieces of yarn to make sure all sides are sewn together.
Once they are sewn together, you can add a couple ties to the back. I made a long chain, about 50 chains long, and using a small hook, pulled it through the back of the cushion (one for each side).
Weave in any remaining ends. I’m sure the back of yours is prettier than mine, I am not very neat with my ends!
Enjoy your comfy new Hexie Puff Seat Cushion!
