The perfect travel project! A little pin cushion made out of 8 hexagon motifs joined in a creative way. It's beautiful today in Chicago, and I just had to take a picture of it outside in the grass.

I have seen this all over the web, and I finally had to make one for myself. I used a 1.25mm crochet hook and DMC Perle Cotton thread. I stuffed it with leftover muslin, since the holes between the rows are pretty big, and I wanted it to have some weight.

A pattern can be found here: http://oneloopshort.blogspot.com/2009/10/my-first-pattern.html, which I did not write, nor did I actually use. I just sorta looked at it and figured it out! Don't worry, I won't sell it or anything.  Cheesy

I think it might make a good Mother's Day gift, what do you think?

The colors are springtime perfect!

I like weighty pin cushions, too. I add rice to mine that are stuffed with wool to give them a bit of weight.
