I like the potential here. I’m using the 5/8″ hexagons from 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.
Summer of the traveling Hexies
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.
