Hex Hex

The 'Hexenkissen' (Witches Pillow) is a very clever little pillow, far easier to make than it actually looks. It is a bit fiddle, but mostly because one is working with a million narrow stripes, but the end product is well worth it. It uses 18 different black and white fabrics (ready cut into a narrow jelly roll with 1 1/4 stripe width) plus a tiny bit of red fabric from my stash.

 Last weekend's weaving project turned into a plain table runner. It's all I hoped it to be. I thought about adding a stencil print to it but my friends voted against it.
 The hardest bit has been the tassles, which took almost as long as the actual weaving, but well worth it.
