Can't wait to see the finished project! Maybe it will motivate me to try.
This is wonderful...such patience
Beautiful design...I envy people who can make anything without a pattern!
Thanks! I am mostly pleased with it.
This is beautiful! I've been thinking I need to start a hexie project. I like to have some small hand work to take with me.
It's a great way to practice the ladder stitch, Amanda, that's for sure! :) I liked doing it just for the fact that I could do it while watching a movie or in the car or just sitting on the front porch.
That's what I was thinking, Teresa_coates . We're taking a beach trip this summer and I was thinking it would be nice for that.
Fantastic! I love how you constructed this with hexies right up to the zipper and the bottom of the pouch plain.
Love it- I have a pile of hexies next to my ironing board, with no purpose in life- think this would be a good start:)
This is terrific. I have to admit, I have not caught the bug yet to try these little hexies. I can see where they would be a good project on a long trip (without one's sewing machine!!)!. I love the look of them, just don't know if I have the patience for stitching them!
They stitch up real fast and I am making coasters with them, so I only need 7 per coaster. Make sure you do them the way she shows in the pictures. The other method stitches through the paper and you have to remove the stitches after they are joined and they won't lay flat on the back side.
Little projects are the best way to start new techniques, too, so coasters are a great idea!
And thanks, all for the kudos. Being the first time I tried them, it's nice to know they turned out so well.
Holy crap that came out SO CUTE!! I love the little hexie zipper pull!! My next hexie project will be smaller ~ this is a great idea for their use!
Thanks, Gail. I really like it--enough to keep it myself! Shocking. I forgot to take a picture, but there are also three hexies on the back. Cute, I agree.
