First up I sewed a couple of the checkerboard strips together that I'd prepared last weekend.
Last time I posted these hexies I said I was looking for some inspiration. I had decided to make a pencil case featuring the hexies on the back but hadn't thought about the design on the front. Susan from Susans Sewing Place suggested another Anni Downs design from The Simple Life which is absolutely perfect...thanks Susan :) So I traced the design and sorted out fabrics for the applique..
I think it looks great with the hexies...so far
Thanks Cheryll for hosting again...appreciate the inspiration!
