Hexagon Bag...Romantic Roses!

I made a bag!...
I love making hexagons, and I thought a hexagon bag would be lovely...I saw a hexagon bag in a book and was inspired to create this one.
I also love roses, so out came my rose fabrics... I fussy cut out the rose hexagons and added a few smaller rose fabric hexagons for interest.
The hexagons are English paper pieced together, added some gorgeous lighter rose fabric from my stash, cross hatched quilted... and this lovely bag was created. ..

Wanting it to look romantic and vintage, I added some coffee coloured rose lace for detail, then beaded the lace with rose coloured teardrop beads...

Early last year I had an Etsy shop, but closed it down when family matters took priority.
I love making pretty things, now that things at home have settled down, I would like reopen my Etsy shop and share what I make with whoever is interested in them...
So many ideas!

Have a lovely day...♥

  10. I love that! Robyn sent me a pattern for a hexagon bag, and I've been slow at looking for the right fabric, but yours reminds me of 3 coordinated rose pieces I have that would look wonderful like you've done yours. Mine has a very pale cream background, but I bet tea-dyed it would be wonderful. Wooohoo....keep the ideas coming :-)
