Easy Peasy Fabric Bowties

Aside from the Easy Peasy Friendship Bracelet craft kits, I also prepared fabric bowtie kits for an activity we had in Japan. The kits came with the cutest checkered and plaid fabric, ripper, safety pins, hairpins, needle and thread.



And of course, my doodled instructions!



It takes all but a few minutes to make. Especially if you opt for the pin route.



I've worn them with a few of my outfits.

The bows also look cute pinned on canvas bags! I'm sharing the doodled zine with all of you, so you can learn how to make your own bowties, too!

Watercolor Honeycomb Paper Tiles

It's been a while since I made the Honeycomb Pattern Notebooks tutorial, and I'm still on this geometric craze. I've been wanting to translate this onto my walls, so here's my first crack at it. I haven't used my watercolor set in a while, so I thought I'd take to the brush as well.



I painted freehand, and did some sort of marble effect using purples and blues. I really really like this palette.



Once dried, I used my Cricut Explore to cut out even hexagons. You can always cut your shapes manually, though!



I then chose a few sheets of cardstock in the same color scheme, and cut them in the same hexagon shape and size.



I planned out my design, making sure no two same-colored hexagons were adjacent to each other.



Then, up on my walls they went. Don't the watercolor pieces add a unique touch?



Show me how your honeycomb wall tiles look. Tag @mikkomix on instagram!
