I didn't want to start making hexagons. My mum was making these things when I was a child and they really never held much appeal for me. Over the last couple of months all I've seen are cute little hexagons made from modern fabrics everywhere and I went to bed last night thinking up what fabrics I could use from my stash for my tiny 1/2 inch hexagons. I've suprised myself, they are so cute and fun to do. Mind you, cutting all of the hexagons out has been trying. (my local fabric store wanted nearly $7 for 100 pieces of paper and there was no way I was paying that plus they weren't quite the right size).
