Hexagon Needle case

I found a really cute hexie needle case with a tutorial on how to make it over at My three Sons, and I couldn't resist making my own.


Because I didn't have all the bits I needed to make one exactly the same, I had to deviate from the tutorial, I only had three hexies ( matching left overs), I used one piece of felt and a very small hair band, as I didn't have the right sized ring.



To make mine, I placed  two hexies wrong sides together, with the hair band (cut to size) placed in the middle and I sewed around them.
I cut a piece of white felt the same size as the last hexie and placed it snugly against the wrong side of the  hexie and sewed them together.
Then to finish up I sewed along the top edge of both hexies with the hair band at the top.

I am pleased with the way it worked out, but do wished I had taken more care making it, Its not my most precise effort Lol, but its a template for a matching pink polka dot one I plan to make to match my hexie pencil case and scissors.



Happy sewing!
