Scrappy hexagon bag

Hi all,

I borrowed this book from my SIL about a month or so ago -

Natural Patchwork by Suzuko Koseki – who also designs fantastic fabric too BTW! There are some beautiful projects in this book, but this is what I chose to make…

The hexagon patchwork shoulder bag. I love the scrappiness of this one! I used a pack of scrap charms I won a while ago and added a few special fabrics from my stash.

I added a zippered pocket to the lining, with a silver ring off one side for keys or whatever. I also used a magnetic snap to hold the top together, this was my first attempt at this one and googled how to do it just to be sure I was going to do it right. Thank you to all the fellow bloggers who put little tips and hints on their blogs!

The straps are leather bag straps from Clover. Really nice and soft!

I love that book too. Your bag is wonderful, great job and I love the handles. I remember doing one of those mganetic clasps and had to get google to rescue me too. Thank goodness for the internet.
