The hexagons require scraps at least 3. June 8, 2012 at 3: June 8, 2012 at 12: This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. I have the book, too, and I adore how your bag turned out!

Perhaps someone with much better drafting skills would do a better job drawing the pattern pieces but I had a more difficult experience with this bag than other bags I have drafted from schematics. I have hexagon pieces and now found something to do with them. Step by step photos or instructions are not included in the pattern description.
Thanks for inviting me to PursePalooza, Sara!
I ended up having to reduce the size of the pattern piece, which then meant that I had to reduce the size of the bag base. Thank you so much for making it Sarah.

If you would like to English paper piece the hexies then be sure to measure the finished size of the hexagon.
However, the struggles I had with the drafted pattern being too large for the quilted hexies and the adjustments that I played around with put this bag at the intermediate level. I have quizzed Sarah on the experience and this is what she said!
I thoroughly enjoyed combining the hand sewing of paper piecing with finishing the bag by machine. So I went back and redrew the schematic.
The book does not use English paper piecing for the hexagons. Sew Sweetness.
