Description

So I've been sewing for decades but hadn't yet tried hexies. I even skipped right past it when everyone and their sister was making them last year. I wanted to give it a try, but just didn't get around to it. Until now.

When faced with a long-ass road trip, I decided I needed some hand-sewing and so the night before I got them ready and spent hours in the car stitching them together and then onto the back side of a hunk of denim. 

The design is my own and based on the size of the hexie panel that I got to before deciding I was done sewing hexies together. I threw a few on the back since I hadn't used all that I'd made for the front.

[ Thanks to Gail Weiss for encouraging the hexie love, though I will never come close to her obsession with them. ;) ]

Can't wait to see the finished project! Maybe it will motivate me to try.

True

This is wonderful...such patience

Beautiful design...I envy people who can make anything without a pattern!

Teresa_coates

Thanks! I am mostly pleased with it.

Amanda

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.

Teresa_coates

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.

Rebecca

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.

Teresa_coates

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!

Teresa_coates

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.
