Hexagon pouch


hexagon pouch, originally uploaded by chick chick sewing.

I sewed a patchwork hexagon by hand some time ago, and simply machine appliqued it onto a piece of linen fabric.  The appliqued hexagon was sitting on my sewing table for a while, waiting to be made into something... and here I finally made it into a pouch.  I learned from Pink Penguin's blog recently that the squeezable metal opening thing that I used in this pouch are called "flex frames".   These openings are very simple to sew; it's easy as making drawstring bags.  I like this pouch, but I think that I should of lined it with some sort of cushiony batting so that I can put fragile and valuable items (e.g., sunglasses, cameras, etc.) inside.

Here are few of the other pictures of this pouch making process.  There are many great online tutorials out there on how to make patchwork hexagons, but I found this one from He Sows, She Sews very helpful.

Trying to make good use of my scrap fabics...




I used these plastic hexagon shaped "foundations" that I got from local Joann's...


Then I machine appliqued the hexagon flower onto a piece of linen fabric...



End result! This is the side view...




Happy hexagon piecing!
