African Flower Mini Project Bag

Good Morning dear blogland friends, here in the UK has been a tad cold again this week, summer is proving stubborn and not wanting to make an early entrance - and I can't tell you hoooow much I am looking forward to the summer.  Escaping to blogland is so refreshing and I want to send you all these

to thank you for the lovely comments about my mini hexagon blanket, comments are really appreciated, its nice to have like-minded people check out your work! 

Some of you have asked about a tutorial for the mini hexagon blanket - I will try to post next week about assembling the blanket but basically you need to make loads of the mini hexagons - and the tutorial is in my side bar - I joined mine as you go, which is easy and if you don't know how to do this I will include that next week.  I was so excited to finish the blanket I haven't measured it or counted how many hexes are needed,  sorry - me being too eager, I will do that for you!!

Here are a some more pictures I have tried to get a closer view for you as requested

Lastly today, I want to show you what I decided to make with the African Flower Motifs. 

Its a little project bag,  its just big enough to keep some wool and hooks, scissors etc for little projects, so I can carry it around easily from room to room or away with me.  It kind of evolved in my mind as I went along and I must admit I really love it!  I added handles and threaded some strong carboard to make them firm (may look for something plastic which will last longer) and ta dah!, one mini project bag!.

Just big enough for my next stash of SIBOL squares to send to Sue!

I hope you all have a great weekend

Speak soon xx

  13. I saw your project bag on Flickr today and had to come and visit your blog. Your African Flower hexagons are simply stunning! I love the color combination! I downloaded the pattern for this hexagon recently but have not tried it yet. You have inspired me to give it a try sooner.
