Friday Night Sew In – April

Hello and welcome 🙂

This post is linking up to Wendy’s blog Sugarlane Designs for

This week I’ve finally got round to making a project bag to keep all my new sewing notions together. It’s taken a while to decide which pattern to use!

I knew I wanted a bag with a flat base so that I can stand it up, but after that I didn’t really have a preference. I spent a few days wandering around the internet looking for inspiration 😉

There are so many lovely bags to choose from but I finally settled on a komebukuro bag or Japanese rice bag which I thought would go well with the origami hexagons I wanted to incorporate into the design.

I started by making four of the hexagons, I’m getting quite quick at these now!


Decorated with beads just as before.

I then appliquéd them onto the bag sides and I’m now quilting them with a bit of big stitch quilting using Pearl cotton thread so the stitches show up.

This is my progress so far


I think it needs a bit more quilting and then I shall put the pieces together.

Watch this space!

Hope you have a great week end.

Until next time,
