Monday Morning Star Count - Finished Hexie Bag

I stitched down the edges and made little loops from #5 perle using buttonhole stitches for the ribbon draw string.





 
This isn’t exactly what I envisioned, but I am pleased with it none the less.  Linking up with Life Under Quilts. I'm taking a trip and won't have MMSC posts for the next few weeks, but I will return with my hexagon projects after the break.

    1. Thanks! The big quilt is coming along slowly. I'm getting ready to take a vacation, so I haven't worked on it the last few days or so, but I hope to work more on it when I get back. It would be nice to have it finished by winter!​

  5. I like the edging - do the hexies just turn in or is there a secret key to this??

    1. This is the same edging I used on the table runner and that will be on the big quilt. There are two layers of hexagons on the outside row. While the papers are still in the hexagons, I stitch them together along the outside edge, right sides together. Next I take out the papers and turn them right side out, I used the point of the scissors to gently poke the points of the hexagons out and press the edges. I stitch the inner edge of the backside hexies to the backing fabric, so it looks nice and neat and finished. Let me know if this doesn't make sense, and I'll try to explain it better.​

  6. That turned out really well - perfect for carrying a small project on your trip! Your edging system is great - I would never have thought of that!

  7. What a clever design for a bag. It would also make a lovely play mat/sack for toys if it were made larger. Or indeed a lunchbox case and luncheon mat in one!
