In my swap group (Australia only) we decided to try swapping some hexagons, so with a quick spin of my pins, I found this cute little pouch made using 1″ hexagons and decided that I would make a Hexie Pouch!
This is how I did it:
I collected my hexies from the swap, cut some papers on my newly acquired Accuquilt Go and started basting.
In no time at all I had them done and had fun ‘playing with positions’
Following the diagram given, I arranged my hexies and started joining them with a whip stitch.
As I used paper templates and not wadding/stiffening, I needed to use my hexie shape to cut out a layer of Vilene.
I then removed all of my papers and popped them away for next time.
Next I opened the edges not stitched and pressed them open.
I then cut a lining to match the opened shape and pressed the vilene to the back of the hexie shape.
Then it was off to the machine where I stitched around the edge leaving a space to turn it through.
I then clipped the corners and turned it through to the right side.
Time to stitch the opening closed. I use ladder stitch to do this.
I then pressed it well and using ladder stitch, joined it up to form the pouch. I added a snap press for closure.
How cute is that!! Thank you Maria-Cecelia-Mora, I love your little pouch and I love mine too!
Now to decide what to make with our next Hexie Swap………
Until next time
