Delving into my scrap bag this week I was wondering what I could possibly make from what I already had in my cupboard. As much as I love to shop, sometimes I surprise myself and come up with far more exciting ideas when I challenge myself to use only things I already have.
I love all the hexagon quilts around at the moment and as a distraction to finishing my own hexagon quilt I thought I might make up some small hexagons from my scrap box.
These cute little hexagons measure 1 inch wide.
Once I had sewn the hexagons onto the linen I added a bit more excitement with a couple rows of simple backstitch down either side and chose a bright green zipper to complement the greens in the hexagons.
This bag is going to a good home - my good friend Lissy who's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks - I hope she likes it!!!
