Hexie zipper pouch
I'm very guilty of sewing just a few extra things when I do swaps. Just can't help myself.
I've been looking at making a hexie (english paper piecing) cushion for my daughter. I have well over 100 probably close to 150 little 1 inch hexies made now. I remember Ros from Sew Delicious had made a little mug rug with hexies but thought I would try a little pouch. I really like the more modern spaced look rather than joined together. It was a good way to try the method before making something bigger.
Check out my inspiration board on Pinterest for all sorts of ideas with hexies.
The pouch is only small (whoops didn't take measurements before I sent it but the zip is probably only 6 inches so about that size).
I adore this sewing themed fabric from Cotton Factory. Not sure if it is on the website as I bought from Instagram. Probably should get some more as I know I will love using it for swaps and myself!
Lined with a very bright Kona solid - Pear from my Aussie Kona Club by Handmade by Emily.
Popped a few little goodies from Daiso in the parcel too.
Hope my swap partner likes it! If she is anything like me, another little pouch is always handy.
