I don’t think it’s any surprise that I’ve caught the hexagon bug. I’ve become an English paper piecing machine and I’m finding myself drawn to any and all hexagon patterns. Just check out this pouch, Moleskine, and duct tape that I got.
Anyways, Jen from 52 Lasers made an assortment of hexagon pendant frames and I got to help her fill them!
My first thought was obviously fabric. I’m a huge fan of making fabric hexagons, so I knew I wanted to make fabric hexagons to wear.
I also wanted to cross stitch a design but that hasn’t happened yet. But I did make a little embroidered one. I just hand wrote the letters, I kind of wish I had done a neater job and traced them. But I loved the idea of using the different spaces to make a more modern mother’s necklace. So I put both girl’s first initials and a heart.
Now that’s when I started trying to think of other ideas. I saw that Jen was playing with adding additional embellishments and I started experimenting with other supplies. I stamped a piece of origami paper and sealed it with Mod Podge and I made one with washi tape. And my final, crazy idea was to fill the frame with seed beads.
Jen is selling these in her supply shop Beadeux on Etsy. You can also get the awesome needleminders and floss holders over there too!
