Hello Crinkle Dreams readers! My name is Deanna and I am guest posting here today because I was Teresa’s secret swap partner in the Covert Robin swap organized by Imagine Gnats.
I blog over at Little D and Me, mostly about my sewing and quilting adventures. I mainly focus on making kids clothes to sell at markets and in my etsy shop, but I also love trying out new quilty type things.
When I found out that Teresa was my partner, I went over to her blog and checked her posts and her about me section. There I found her other blog which also helped me to figure out what to make her. Lucky for me, she also had her Pinterest link on the side, so I checked that out too to find out more of Teresa’s style.
I found a couple hexie projects on her quilt board and so I thought I would make her something with hexies.
I also found out that she had been to Vietnam to work in an orphanage and that he was hoping to go back sometime. That led me to the idea of a hexie pouch! That way, she could stay organized while traveling and have something pretty to do it with.
I chose to go with bright colours and to use a pouch pattern that she had also pinned.
I added some hand stitching to the pouch to personalize it for her.
Hexies are a lot of fun to make and are so addicting!

I used the tutorial by Thimble Blossoms when I began making hexies.
