I'm not exactly sure when it happened, but I am obsessed with hexagons : )
I designed this modern Hexagon Handbag for Stitch Spring 2014. It is a big bag, perfect for sewing projects or just if you like big handbags like I do!
The fabric with the "lady" and "vintage household items" are from Melody Miller. I love her fabric and have been a fan for quite some time.
Her fabrics have the most wonderful motifs and are perfect for fussy cutting.
Sew me a Song has some of her fabrics here!
My first hexagons were hand stitched, like the ones used for my hexagon pouch.
I then found these fabulous vintage potholders on Ebay
which inspired my modern version - a Mother's Day gift for my mom.
I recently took a wonderful class for machine stitching hexagons from Katie Pederson, Quilting Modern author, which inspired my machine stitched hexagon projects including the Hexagon Handbag and machine stitched hexagon placemats, pictured above.
I think the next project in my hexagon future is a quilt - I will keep you posted ; )
Happy Valentine's Day! I am sneaking this pic in of my hubby and me circa 2000. I met this wonderful man on Valentine's day exactly 15 years ago!!
I am so lucky to spend each and every day with him!
