Be A Hexie Queen Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Welcome everyone to day 5 
of the "Be A Hexie Queen" Blog Hop!!!
Thank you Madam Samm and our Cheerleader Debby :)

Today is my turn to show you what I've come up with.

Since the theme stated
"Anything and Everything"
I wasn't bound to a sewing project.

I decided instead, to bust out my jewelry making supplies!

A few months back I watched a online video 
for a product called Phoomph for fabric.
It's made by Coats & Clark
and it comes in either stiff or soft.
I couldn't wait to use it!
To see more about it click HERE.

I bought mine at Joann's online.
I used the stiff Phoomph and some of my favorite
fabric scraps to make a bracelet and earrings.
As you can see I made more than enough earrings....

So what should I do with all those earrings?
How about I give them to you?
There will be 5 winners chosen at random!
So how do you enter the giveaway?
Just leave me a comment 
and tell me which pair of earrings is your favorite 
and where you are from :)

You have until Friday Aug 30th to enter.
I will announce the winners here on Saturday the 31st.
This giveaway is open to everyone.
Good luck!

(Just in case anyone is interested 
in making their own Hexie jewelry,
I will be posting a tutorial here tomorrow)

And don't forget to check out the awesome 
creative talents of the other amazing bloggers
showing off their Hexies today!

Clever use of hexies! I am into orange, but every color is my favorite. Thank you for sharing.


Karen, those are fan-flipping-tactic!
And I'm glad your'e able to keep.blogging! I dealt with something similar. Not fun!


Oh and I love the red and turquoise... and I'm in Abbotsford, BC, Canada!


Your jewelry is so cute!! Love the one with the blue and white check, I am from Oswego, Illinois. What is fun idea for jewelry.


Oh my, those are absolutely adorable. Love them all. I will have to check out that product. They are so cool!

Your earrings look adorable! Now, I don't have pierced ears, so you don't have to put me in the draw. I just wanted to say that they look lovely!


Coming to you from Chattanooga, TN. What a great idea...I really enjoyed your post and really like all of the earrings especially the teal and red ones, orange one oh I like them all..


What a fun idea! I love your earrings, and would be happy to get the first ones. If I don't win, I certainly will come back tomorrow for a tutorial. It's my day tomorrow in this bloghop, and you're welcome to visit. By the way, I'm from Norway.


What a fabulous idea!
I'm in the UK but I don't have pierced ears so don't count me in your lovely giveaway!


woww, these are so lovely. I would never ever have thought of using hexies like that.
I'm already looking forward to the tutorial :-).
But it's hard to pick a favorite pair. OK, when you twist my arm I'ld say the orange pair LOL. I'm a follower now (bloglovin), too bad you lost your followers but I'm sure they'll be back soon. I'm from the Netherlands.
Dutch greetings


I love your bracelet and the ear rings. A wonderful way to use the hexies. As all the hexie ear rings are so cute , it is up to you to choose, if I will be so lucky to win a pair. By the way I am from Sweden.
Thanks for sharing your creativity and being part of this blog hop

That is beautiful!! I love how you put the buttons on. And those earrings, what a great idea, how creative you are. I love earrings, you can never get enough. And Hexies....who would have thought!!

Kwilt Krazy

Very pretty! I like the gingham blue pair :)


What a great idea to use up tiny fabric scraps! Love the turquoise and red, but I could go crazy with this-I have tons of batik fabric scraps that are waiting for something like this! Great thing about this is they look to be reversible, so you make one pair of earring and you really have 2! Is that product only available on-line? I'd love to win a pair to have as a sample! Thanks for sharing.


What a unique and lovely way to use hexies! Your hexie jewelry is fabulous. Thanks for sharing these beautiful and inspiring ideas with us.


So very creative! I never would have thought of this. Your hexie jewelry is darling. I do not have pierced ears, but someone I love does. So were I lucky enough to win, these would be a gift. Since I is almost autumn in New England where I live, I will say the orange ones. Orange is the color of fall. Thanks for sharing your creativity! ... :) Pat
