The long sides of my little bag are pieced, and now I’m working on appliqueing the teeny hexie strips to their proper places. I decided to go with the hopscotch print for the main fabric of the bag because I just love it so much, it should be the main fabric, right? Let’s just hope my girls don’t think that the bright pink earmarks it as only appropriate for the under-thirty crowd.
I do my handwork while listening to my kids recite their various school facts, or else I go insane sitting and listening to the things I recited as a young school child. (The brain can only take so much–when you start in on the third kid’s schooling, you’re just kind of done.) BUT, during my second grader’s math lesson, these little hexagons came in handy:
It was a lesson on angles, and she’d forgotten how many angles a hexagon had. Hee hee. Crafty teacher mama for the win!
