Christmas Do Number Four

Another end-of-year get-together, with another quilting group. There were the usual gifts all round, and too much yummy food. One smart person brought along an activity for us to do, which was fun and which kept everyone quiet for a while.

Here's my first attempt:
The idea is to make two of these origami-style hexagons, place them back-to-back, sew buttons or beads to cover the messy centres, and attach a hanging ribbon. Instant [not at all] Christmas decoration! It's a bit difficult to see the details on this dark fabric, but if you want to try it yourself, you can get the folding instructions here.

I'd recommend starting with larger hexagons than we were using, unless you have tiny fingers!

  1. not too difficult using paper but a lot trickier with fabric. i've made some with fabric fused to paper, bulky but interesting result.
