They're very popular right now, and all the neat projects I've seen online have my mind percolating with ideas.  Unfortunately, I have too many unfinished projects right now, and I don't want to start another one.  Fortunately, Wild Olive came to the rescue with an adorable hexagon necklace -- just enough to scratch that itch.

Task one was deciding on a fabric -- a bright pink for summer?  A pretty calico?  A dramatic print?  Unable to decide, I went ahead and made four:

Next step was to pick the felt backing, and almost immediately found the perfect color for the calico, so that made the decision for me:
The charm is extremely lightweight; I'll test-wear it, and if it flips about too much I'll sew a tiny metal washer to the back to weigh it down.  The others I'll save for another project.  I'm already thinking of doing a riff on crocheted granny squares, and surrounding the black hexagons with rows of brightly colored ones.


  1. Your necklace is adorable! The black floral fabric up there is especially pretty, too. Wild Olive got me with those cute little hexies ideas as well (in fact I was just starting a post about it tonight!). They're so easy & pretty, I felt compelled to stop what I was doing one night last week, and make hexagons. Crafty impulses are weird, aren't they? I was thinking of making one of the headbands she featured too, super cute.

  2. Thanks! I can't wait to see what you do with hexagons; your work is always so beautiful.
