This was a totally new experience for me. I used to make friendship bracelets at camp when I was young but have never stitched anything. Many bumps encountered along the way but I am happy with the way it turned out. Catan hex tile pattern was purchased on Etsy from Grated Expectations — the rest of the piece I designed on a grid.
