Quickie Project

My how time flies! I keep meaning to post something, anything, but things just keep getting in the way. I’ve been working on lots of projects, but really can’t post photos of much until after Christmas. And, while I have much about which to be philosophical during this season, I just don’t have a lot of time to put it all down on paper, electronic or not. I do have one thing that I’ve completed recently, for our annual fund raising auction of my guild, and since that event has come and gone, it’s okay to post a photo. Hexagon Pouch

This is made from an elongated hexagon, pieced in the log cabin style, quilted as it was pieced. The front is another elongated hexagon, but with the top end chopped off to provide a straight edge for the opening (which is under the flap). Once I had the piecing done, I put on some beaded embellishments, then assembled the bag. I added a lining to the bag at the time of assembly, so that when the binding went on, I was covering all the raw edges at once. The button is sewn to the flap, and the dangly beads wrap around the button to keep it closed. A pretty rayon twisted cord makes up the strap, which is long enough to wear the pouch around the neck. This project was fast, fun, and well received, so I guess that makes it a winner. I have more ideas for this little concept, but they are way on the back burner, because I have lots of other ideas floating around in my brain, waiting to escape as well.

Until next time…
