I love this fabric - so happy and colourful and I am so lucky that it coordinated with the pocket section I made originally! I did a tiny bit of hand quilting on some of the diamond shapes and love how those diamonds actually make hexies.
The pattern makes a really clever three-zipped-pocket pouch with storage sections in between and opens wide but boy did I struggle with the instructions. Thankfully The Quilt Barn did a sew-along earlier in the year so there were visuals for me to turn to! [I am a visual learner]
Kona fabrics are the best - all of those solids sure come in handy when making bags! I went with a dark blue (not sure the shade) that I had on hand that matched the navy on the outer fabric so it tied it all together. I love it when a plan (ahem) comes together! 'Sew Together'... hahahaa
This label sums it up:
Here is the whole parcel that I sent. I had fun gathering teas, a rainbowy notebook (my partner loves rainbows), chocolate, scraps, zippers and a tea towel with hexies on it and a hexagon shaped potholder.
And here is the pot holder and coordinating tea towel. The colour is a little off here - the purples and oranges look electric but they aren't that bright in person.
I sure hope that my partner likes everything because I had a lot of fun sewing for her.
GOOD NEWS: this is one of my 2nd Quarter FAL goals and I can now cross it off my list!
