More Hama Fun

On alternate Fridays (yes, I know it’s not Friday, shush!) I’m going to show you all what I’ve been making with my Hama beads.

As I mentioned in my origami post the other day, I’ve been struggling to fit in all my hobbies recently.  But I have managed to do a little bit of Hama.

After two not-so-successful pieces, I went simple and made a pretty pattern.
