Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do simple piecing

Pattern Description:

The Hex Messenger has a cute hexie shape that's fun to make. Create a bold graphic look with solid colors or mix it up with your favorite prints. The Hex Messenger Bag can be made almost entirely with pre-cut quilt strips ("jelly rolls") or a variety of fun fabric scraps from your stash. The bag is lined and has a large interior pocket. This pattern is part of my Make New or Make Do(tm) sewing pattern collection.

Skill Level: Confident Beginner to Intermediate
(For a Beginner Level version of the Hex Messenger Bag, try sewing the Prism style, second photo shown, using full triangles instead of pieced strips. Instructions included with pattern.)

My 8-page printable PDF instructions include color photographs, detailed diagrams, glossary and all the assembly directions you'll need to make the Hex Messenger Bag.
