Did you guess what I was making???

Six hexagons and four diamonds.
This is what they become.
A heart.
Did you guess it??

This was fun making. I saw it on a norwegian blog some days ago and I fell in love with this heart. During the day at work I sat and speculated how it was done. I played with hexagons in my head and knew it would not work. But then I solved the problem. I had to add some diamonds. Of cours, why didn't I think about that earlier. I used six one inch hexagons andfour one inch six-point diamonds. And if you see at the photo from yesterday you can see how they are supposed to be stitched together. I left two sides of one diamond in the middle to turn the right side out and stuff it. I think I will use 1 1/2 inch templates next time I do this. I am planning to make bigger heart in red for christmas.
Several bloggers have given me so nice comments on the cosmetic bags I made yesterday. I have made one today and I will show you tomorrow how I made it. A little tutorial.

I like the hearts AND the cosmetic bags! I bet the heart would be neat stuffed with potpourri, in Christmas colors, small enough to hang on a tree or tuck in a drawer. :)

Wow May Britt, how nice! I love the heart. You are a clever girl.
I am looking forward to the tutorial!
I have finally managed to get you on my links list. I spent ages there this morning, muttering threats to blogger!

That is just a darling little heart. I would never have guessed in a million years, but going back I see it now. I'm feeling that I am going to have to try this one on for size. Thank you so much for showing it.

I never would have guessed you were making a heart. It is adorable. I can't wait to see the tutorial on the cosmetic bag. I have some nieces that would enjoy those for Christmas.

Cute heart May Britt :-)

i also had no idea what you were going to make with the hexagons. It's just beautiful. I love the color and i love heart shaped things. I have many things around the home that have hearts on them or are heart shaped. I would like to know how to make one.

May Britt, I love the heart made from the hexagons. In fact, I love everything made from haxagons. A tutorial would be sooo nice --hint, hint! (Lesa, CQForNewbies_
