Hexagon Needlebooks

Tonight I am teaching a class that involves hexagons, so I've been looking for various ways to use the shape.
I found a great tutorial for Hexagon Needlebooks over on My Three Sons.

These little notebooks are easy to do and are a fun way to use scraps of focus fabrics.

Hexagons are the perfect shape to do a little fussy cutting.

The inside of the needlebook is made of wool.

This fat quarter was a gift from a friend,

that contained wonderful designs that could also be used for the back.

I'm sure you can find D-rings in many places, but I found mine at my local quilt store, 4 for around $1.50

These hexagon needlebooks are great! Hey...does Quilted Works carry grommets...I'm looking for some large grommets/grommet tool and can't find them anywhere.

Darling idea Nedra. You could attach a clip of some sort to clip that with your needlework as well. Highly functional!!
