Hello and welcome 🙂

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,
