Hexie Sewing Kit

I am into my little hexies at the minute, remember the coaster I made, well I just love the look of these once they are sewn together. I made two strawberry hexie flowers and thought I could make them into a little pouch. I cut a little lining for it and grabbed a zip.


This is the little lining pouch I made (quite late at night hence the rubbish photo).

For the top two hexies on each side I had to add a hexie to the back to make the finish right,


I added the inside pouch and slip stitched it to the top, I blanket stitched all round the remaining sides and added a little zip pull ( I will show that in more detail in my next post).


I made a miniature little needle case from my little 1" hexies I added some cottons, a tape measure.



I went on to make a few more little needle cases as I thought they were quite cute!




Here is the fnished article my strawberry hexie portable sewing kit.

That's fantastic - you are so talented. Looking at your fab makes with hexies has got me wanting to try some, but I think it will have to be added to my ever growing list of things I want to make and do! xxx

Oh Kandi, I adore the little pin case. I may have to try making one myself, although it won't be half as pretty. You really are an inspiration. xxx

Lovely hexie usage- especially the pouch

dizzytina said...

VintageVicki said...

You are very clever - what a brilliant idea :)

POOTLE FLUMP said...

Ooo how lovely does that look!! How do you make hexies? Is it all hand sewing or with your machine? Hexies and quilting totally confuse me!! What a fab idea though!! xxx

Kandi said...

You do them by hand Pootle. Have a look at Texas freckles blog http://www.texasfreckles.com/2010/03/hexagon-charm-quilt-piece-along.html, I got the template from there, you use little scraps of cloth and sew them round the papers, then take the papers ont once you have sewn them together. Its very addictive!

Eek, the cuteness! Lovely fabric and what a useful little creation it turned into.

ps - I think the film has already been on at Tyneside but ask them nicely and it might get put on again. If not, it's out on dvd in October. I reckon you'll love it :)

Alexandra Mason said...

That is wonderful! Such a great idea xx

Val said...

Hi Kandi .... I am a Texas Freckles too! Very addictive don't you think? Your idea of the sewing kit is just the Bee's Knees! How did you think it up?? I don't think I could put a zip in but perhaps I could do a loop and button, but your little needle cases and absolutely the cutest yet!
Fantastic! How inspiring you are :0)
Have a lovely day,
Val xx
