If you have read my blog for any length of time, you might have noticed that I haven’t done a hexagon project yet, even though they have been all the rage for quite some time. I have to stay that English Paper Piecing doesn’t really appeal to me all that much (yet) and neither do Y seams frankly. So I was excited to have a chance to try out the Sizzix Half Hexagon Die because I could make hexagons without the EPP and Y seams!
I tried a small scale project, which still involved 40 die cut pieces, to try it out before going bigger. Besides, making a bag gave me a chance to embellish with a felt flower.
Here’s the zipper shot.
If you’d like the free tutorial for making the pouch, I walk you though it step by step, including zipper installation on the Sizzix blog today.
