Ta-dah! It took a little more time than I’d hoped, but it’s finished. And lucky for me, the sun was shining this evening, so I sat outside to do the hand-stitching. And in the end I had this cute little hexie pouch, perfect for carrying myriad bits and baubles.
I hand-stitched the pop of green, from Michael Miller‘s Cotton Couture collection, on the inside and then used that same green to make a little tab for the zipper pull.
And that’s my very favorite part–the zipper pull! First I ironed some of the stiff fusible to one of the hexies, whipstitched the green part into the inside of that hexie, then laid another on top and did a little ladder stitch between them. Turned out lovely, if I do say so myself.
And I love this Kate Spain fabric even more now. She has a new collection called Serenade out now that I think I’d love in-person just as much.
I may have to make more of these to put in the shop. Thoughts?
