I finally started using up my fussy cut hexes! I'm going on a three day quilting retreat starting Friday and I thought it would be nice to make myself a big roomy tote for all my supplies.
22 hexes in total all one inch in size. I used invisible thread and machine appliqued them on. I ironed them so so so much and each little point is so wonderful! They are all hand sewn together before the paper is removed. After pressing them, I removed the papers, then ironed them again. Then they were pinned into place and sewn on.
I used super gorgeous linen. The lining is Erin Michaels paint swatch fabric, I used it because it has all the same colors as the hexes, so so so much fun! The polka dots are from Momo Wonderland. I hand sewed the top binding on. The handles are I believe Clover and from Japan. They were also hand sewn on and I totally pushed my needle through my finger nail. EEEKK!!!
The bag is machine quilted, in hindsight I wish I'd done french seams on the inside of the bag. But that's ok!
