Having fun with hexies

I've managed to sew a few of those hexies together after deciding to make a pencil case to match a few items I  made earlier this year.

This bag was built around my first needleturn project I did in classes with Debbie Donegan at Everything Country...all my favourite colours.



With the scraps, I decided to make Anni Downes' cute turtle pincushion and pencil case from her book The Simple Life.  These were really fun to make and a great distraction from the quilt I'm making...

So why not make another pencil case?  This time for my cutters.  I'm planning for the hexies to be the back and I'm waiting for some inspiration to come my way for a design on the front.

I could be waiting a long time...and I really need to get back to my quilt!!!!


  1. What a cute little bag! There is no end to what we can do with our hexies.

  2. lovely little projects and great to see all the little bits of fabric being used...

  3. Hello Diane,

    Love that pencil case so cute.

    Happy days.

  4. Gorgeous projects...maybe soem of those "swing" type drawings in Anni's book - similar to your pincushion . . .
    Love the colours of the hexies.

  5. What a lovely bag! and the turtle is delightful. xx
