21 Fabric Hexagons Later...

My bag is finished :) This was a lot of fun - I had the hexagons made up over a couple of nights, then it was a matter of sewing them all together. There's no pattern for this bag, a friend from work made one and then shared her idea with me. I went for some wooden handles as I didn't quite have enough fabric to make a fabric handle.




My fabric requirements for this bag were: just over 50cm for the backing fabric, then three fat quarters of assorted colours of which I used just over half each. I had to go back to the quilt shop for some more of the blue polka dots so picked up some more fat quarters :
an Amy Bulter print

and this sweet fabric which I thought would be perfect to use on some of my "Pink" stitched pieces for my basket.


I have been stitching too so I'll be back tomorrow with my latest finish, a small Valentine's piece.
See you soon,
~Katrina~
