Well, for some reason I can't for the life of me think why I haven't written about making this wonderful bag before now.   Last year I was in an ornament swap for Christmas, but I decided that I wanted to do something a little special for the friend I was sending to. I had found this wonderful instructional tutorial over on The Zen of Making  on making hexagons and this adorable bag to carry them in.
This is the one I sent my friend. From what I understand she loves it and takes it with her traveling.

I got to thinking a while back, that I could use one of these to carry with me to the hospital and all doctors offices I seem to be waiting a lot in lately. Last year I started making the Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses. It seemed everything I carried was to bulky, to small, to open and everything would fall out.  So here is the one I made for myself. 

I really love these colors. I used them as one of my blocks and for a block swap that I'm also in. 
I kind of went all out on this one for me.
I painted the altoid tins to match, made a scissor
case and needle book too.

Here you can see the items I have chosen to put
in the tins.

And yes everything fits nicely inside for traveling and fits neatly in my carry all bag.


  1. Your hexie bag and matching accessories all look great. Isn't this a fabulous little bag for taking EPP projects on the go? Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. It's the best. I plan on making a couple more for some of my hexie friends.
