    I really hope to do them for gifts. Just have to remember the supplies when I am out. I am going to use graft paper to draw my hexagons as I don't have any Templars in the right color.

    This is out of what I usually do but I tend to do a lot of things with my hands, I guess I should get on it soon if they are to be done by Christmas,

    The box is really beautiful and I love hexagons anyway. I bought a square version of this in London a few years ago. It came filled with thimble, needles, thread, small scissors and even has a small rabbit attached by a ribbon, I guess to use as a pincushion or needle sharpener. (I'm not sure...) It is a great memento of our trip, but I think yours is more beautiful!!! Thanks for the tute. :-D

    Cutie, if you want a hexagon 8 inches across, use a compass. Open it to 4 inches, and draw a circle. Then put the point of the compass on the circle, and make a small mark with the pencil, four inches away, also on the circle. Put the point of the compass where the mark bisects the circle, and make another mark on the circle four inches away. Continue around the circle until you have six marks. Join them up from mark to mark and you have a hexagon with four inch sides. No graph paper needed.


    Well done to everyone who also intends to make one, I hope you will all post here when they are done. And thank you to all who thought they actually could make one from what I have said and pictured. The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

    Lesley, I have started to make one as a gift and must congratulate you on the very clear and concise directions. It has been really easy so far. I am up to the point of sewing the box lid together, making the pockets, and elasticated pieces and am thoroughly enjoying it.

    None at all Elle, well none that you can't cope with, you seem to do your best work when under pressure, if my IRR is anything to go by!

    If that's all I had, and I really wanted to make a box, then I would make the shoe box work. For the top, I would stick two same size hex's together for strength, I think the brim would probably be OK in single thickness, and all other parts have two pieces of fabric covered card stuck together, back to back. Ball in your court Patti.

    I used a piece of cardboard that came with a parcel. I spied also the ideal thing, I think, the large boxes used for Soap Powders. I am sure they would work great.

    I don't see why not, Elle, the large soap box card is quite sturdy, though it might perfume your needlework box for a little while, so pick one you like the smell of.
