A Hexie Flatware Pouch for the Across The Pond Sew Along

I shared photos of some little hexagons
I made using a mini charm pack
of Glamping by Moda.

My mom was quite taken with the cute
little 1" hexies,
so I decided to use a few of them to make something for her.
But what should I make???

I turned to a comment by The Patchsmith
for inspiration.
In my post for this month's
Amanda suggested using a single cutlery pouch
for a breakfast tray or a Mother's Day present.

{Brilliant! No need to make an entire set!}

I made up a single one-of-a-kind pouch,
just as a special gift for my mom...
for no reason at all.

I chose three of the prettiest hexies,
and used white Kona cotton
as a glamorous backdrop.

I stitched around each hexie by machine.
So easy, actually!!!

{I shortened the stitch length to 2.0 on my sewing machine.}

For the lining of the flatware pouch,
I selected a piece of Sunshine Roses
by Tanya Whelan.
I love the aqua polka dots in the background.

This little flatware pouch
will brighten any day, don't you think?

Enjoy, Mom!
