embroidery hoops and patchwork hexagons, both of which I can't get enough of at the moment.
I remember seeing in Liberty's a couple of years ago, fabric displayed in embroidery hoops which I thought was a novel idea. I soon came home and replicated it. You may remember me posting about it.
As my love of hexagons grew, I fancied combining the two. One, I made towards the end of year using various oddments of fabric.
The one I'm currently working on is a little more structured. I'm kind of wishing I hadn't used the white fabric but we'll see what the finished article looks like. The hoop is a big one - 12" in diameter.
It is a cheap way of creating a new hanging item for your wall. If you don't fancy sewing hexagons together you could just display some pretty fabric with some ribbon, alternatively there's lots of lovely wrapping paper around so that could be another use with the hoop.
Have a lovely weekend!
