I’ve been plowing away at making hexagons, I had over 1,100 at my last count, but I wanted to do a smaller hexagon project that I could quickly finish.
I made a mini rainbow of 3/4″ hexagons and attached them together. I bought this canvas bag with the intention of cross stitching on it, but I couldn’t resist sewing on hexagons instead. First I glued them on with Aleen’s fabric fusion glue and then blind stitched them to the bag.
I got a little over zealous with the glue and it got around the edges of the fabric. And there are a few areas where my blind stitch isn’t so blind, I accidentally pierced through to the fabric. I also learned why thimbles are used, I poked myself more times than I care to admit while sewing through the thick canvas.
But despite all the imperfections and mistakes, I love how the bag turned out. It’s a great size for carrying projects around and it was a learning experience for if I do more appliqué.
Have you made any imperfect projects lately that you love anyways?
