Hexie Sew Along bag

The Sew Along bag is finished and I must say it makes me smile because it is kind of crazy looking with the hexies appliqued and the multi-color checked edges.  


All of this came from my stash - the black outside, the hexies, the lime green lining and the checkered bindings.  I used a lighter weight interfacing on this one and those side panels were a bit easier to handle than the first one I made.  Lesson learned.

This bag is only about 9 inches wide but it uses almost a yard of fabric. There are 3 zippered pockets inside plus a longer zipper closes the whole bag and becomes the handles. Such a clever design.


I have another set of zippers and some fabric from the stash set aside to make one more of these. I found myself looking through my fat quarter "collection" for ideas and must admit I found several possibilities.

  1. Found my way here by way of the Linky Party at Freemotion by the River. I have made 2 of these bags but I have to say I Love your hexie idea. I just might need to try this. Will be checking out your blog posts later as am short on time this morning.

  5. I had a feeling you were preparing your outside fabric for this bag. It is wonderful!! I just love your fabrics with the hexies. I might have to copy your idea. :)

  6. After making 9 of these bags, I can say I love them as well! Did I tell you about the mini? It's about 2" shorter with 1 less pocket. It's great for my handwork.
