I started this bag so long ago that I can't even find the blog post of it's inception.
I know I had a Japanese Patchwork book that inspired it's beginnings.
I used the English paper-piecing method for the hexagons
with a charm pack that I particularly loved the colours of.
I did a wee bit of hand quilting here and there to hold it together.
I love seeing all the wee stitches like this.
I did make a mistake though when I trimmed the blocks at the end
i cut through the hand stitching and lots of the edges came undone.
I'm not sure how I should have done it really.
Aren't the colours lovely? soft grey, pink, lemon and a burnt orange.
Then I used my second and last set of handles on this bag.
I'm definitely going to order some more, they are fantastic.
I finished it one night and when I got up in the morning
Annie had claimed it for her wooden bowls.
"Thanks for the nice bag for me mummy" she chirps.
Seeing as I made that mistake and I think it might need on-going mending
I can't give it away. So Annie can use it.
It took exactly one charm pack, although I substituted two charms
for these two scraps from Auntie Cookie.
It's a perfect amount of hexagons to cut your teeth on and decide if you like them or not,
or to use up an unloved UFO if you have one!
