The hexagon bag is finished!


I found a nice way to sew the zipper (in a Japanese book) and the hexagon bag is finished.

I did not sew the zipper directly to the top of the bag, instead, it is sewn to strips and the the strips to the bag, can you see what I mean?



Ready for shopping!


A short sneak peak of my Tagalong, I know I’m a bit late again, but I guess I can still finish it in time.


This the Church where DS2 had his Confirmation. I would like to show some more pictures, but we were not allowed to take photos during the ceremony. It was done by a photograph and we can get it later. Anyways, it was a nice celebration, well organized and the weather was nice, too.


My Quilt Group has a meeting next week so I have to get some blocks and a project done. Pretty busy days ahead!

Have a lovely and creative week!

I still get "zipper hives" and have yet to take the plunge and just do it. Super cute bag.

Your bag is amazing Suzie - love the red and aqua colour scheme - the zipper finishes it off perfectly. Congratulations to your son on his confirmation. Have a lovely week.

The zipper makes the pretty bag even more practical. You always manage to do such a perfect job; I think I will need to practice this method and give my bags a professional look.

Your new bag is adorable and I absolutely love it!!

The bag is gorgeous Suzie. Yes I know the strips method of putting in a zip. I think it makes for a stronger bag too. It looks so lovely all finished.

Lovely colour blocks too.

Glad the confirmation went without a hitch.
