Next month I'll be heading to Finland. Its sort of the realization of a lifelong dream to head home to the motherland and visit family. I'm so excited I can hardly sleep at night.
I've been planning and daydreaming all the things I can sit and do during my long flight to Helsinki and on the top of the list is some time with my hexies.
So I made this little hexie holder to tote them along for my Scandinavian adventure.
I found the fabric at Hart's here in Santa Cruz. I am sort of over the moon in love with this fabric and kind of want to wallpaper my life in it. I. love. it.
Turns out zippers are tricky and that took me the longest. I sort of made it up as I went along but I think it turned out pretty well and it is going to work great for toting hexie supplies on the airplane and anywhere else I'd need to bring them.
Its got one pocket for completed hexies, one pocket for templates
and then one fuller pocket for fabric pieces and a large pocket on the side to place completed blocks and little spots for travel scissors, thread, needles, thimble and even a threader should I decide to use one.
I love how it turned out and I think its going to be perfect for my trip.
Two more weeks till go time!
