what is it about hexagons?

i'm having a love affair with hexagons at the moment..i'm putting them on cards as well as on the tea towels that i blogged about earlier..i am using recycled vintage dressmaking patterns that i source from op shops as the background paper avoiding the folds..then i:
  • paper piece the hexagons using vintage fabric to get a crisp shape
  • iron them
  • remove tacking stitches and paper
  • sew a vintage button in the centre using embroidery floss and tie it at the front for extra detail
  • adhere the hexagon to the card..

phone camera quality photos!

i will be offering these for sale at the same market where i am hoping to sell the tea towels..i am also making teacup, cupcake and bird cards..busy days ahead! jane
