I will be adding these to my Folksy shop soon, and making some more for myself!
As usual, I'm already planning ahead to my next project.
I have been meaning to use my hexies that I made a while ago, but I wasn't sure what to do with them....then I got a new laptop....and so it became obvious that I should use them on a laptop case!
The hexies are all made from different red and white fabrics so I'm going to go with a white background (a bargain table cloth I recently found on sale at the supermarket!), luckily I had a lovely red zip in my box of vintage zips, and I raided my button jar for some lovely red and white ones.
I'm not quite sure how to lay out the design of the case, (the only thing I've worked out is that I'll do a zip along the long edge as my laptop is quite big and I don't think a flap would work as well). Here are some layouts I've been playing around with -
I like having projects like this on the go, because its something for me and something that I'll use on a regular basis. I feel so enthusiastic about getting it 'just right', but that also means that I'll spend way too long over-analysing every little detail! It feels great designing and making something practical that I know I'll use all the time, (like my sewing rool wrap and my travel sewing roll).
It's a busy weekend for local car boot sales too, we visited 2 this morning in 2 local villages. There were no fabrics though :( but we did find lots of lovely toys for Joshua (he got a slide for the garden, a little play kitchen, some dvds and a fire engine book). There's another car boot sale tomorrow so fingers crossed the weather holds out...and that someone is selling some lovely fabric.....!
Here's Joshua enjoying his car boot find!
PS - If you've made any projects using hexies (and you've blogged or posted on Flickr) please leave me a link so I can check them out! I have a feeling I'll be using them in more projects.
