A few months back, I needed a good project for a road trip in the car. So I started making little tiny hexagon flowers. It's a perfect way to use up scraps and it's so portable I can take them with me anywhere.
Last fall, my friend Amy gave me this cute little pencil box (from Target, I think.)
It has become the perfect traveling-hexie box for carrying all my supplies and keeping them handy for any spare moment in the car or at the pool when I can pick up and do a little hand work. The box stays with me in my purse at all times. Inside I keep my templates, a bunch of fabric scraps, scissors and a bobbin of thread - smaller and more portable than a spool - in the box. The sturdiness of the box keeps everything safe and it doesn't get ratty like a plastic bag does.
I just started adding the white hexagons that will surround the colored flowers.PaperPieces.com. They're little, so it's going to take some time to have anything sizeable put together, but I'm fine with that since I love having my little portable project during all that normally-'wasteable' time.
