It’s HEXIE time!!
If you follow my blog you know I love working on Ahhhh’s but I will show a bit of those at the end here.
I DID make a new project for this hop.
I showed this picture last week, a project I worked on while on vacation in Napa, CA
My plan was to make a small zippered pouch from THIS book at connecting threads. But when we got back home, I searched everywhere and just couldn’t find the book! grrr.
So instead I googled how to make a lined zippered pouch.
and I found one HERE
Now I was a bit scared to cut up this pretty hexie piece
and even cut it in half!
but I managed fine and cut the lining to match and found a pink zipper
When I had sewn it all together I figured I wanted a flat bottom and knew I had to mark a diagonal and sew on the line and trim
well….. see what I did wrong? I forgot the line had to go the other way (hard to explain if you haven’t done it before)
so I ended up with a pouch with corners cut off the bottom….
errrr. TOTALLY meant to DO that…. RIGHT!?
here’s a front and back view
And inside view. May use it as my hand sewing pouch now
And here’s a few pics of AHHHH’s
(Artistic, Hexotic, Hectic, Hillbilly Hexagons)
