I like a little ‘hexie action’ in the evenings, and over Christmas I enjoyed working my Tilda scraps into 1.25″ EPP hexies.
As they grew I thought I would make a cover for my soft cover Bible. But then I keep a journal with my Bible, as well as Bible Study books!!!
So a cover grew into a bag!
I remembered many years ago I had designed and taught a boxy bag class (my mum uses hers for keeping books in). So I blew the cobwebs off my pattern and set to!
There is so much I love about this new boxy bag.
Firstly, it has plenty of room for my Bible and study books and a separate pocket for my A4 journal. And because it is made from flex foam it sits squat and open giving me visible and easy access to the contents.
I also love the combo of Essex Yarn Dyed Linen (Denim) with the Tilda Hexies and a little vintage lace.
I even included some hexies inside.
Also inside is handbag mesh in the base, to ensure the shape of the bag is maintained while carrying around heavy books.
Now that I can keep my Bible books together in one place, I’m super organised whether reading at home or at Bible Study group!
I have another round of hexies being made at the moment!
I wonder what they’ll turn into!
