How-To: Sewing Hexies On The Go Travel Kit


Pam at Gingerbread snowflakes is a master of orderly crafting, and I just love her travel kit for sewing hexies on the go.

Most of my readers know that when I am working on a project in earnest, I carry it with me almost everywhere I go to take advantage of what would otherwise be “lost” minutes! This habit is a big part of how I manage to fit as much crafty goodness into my life as I do! Generally speaking – most fiber crafts – knitting, crochet, embroidery and hand sewing – are excellent candidates! Hexies on the go – a bit more challenging! So many little bits and scraps – and hexies to corral.

To keep all those little completed 3/4″ hexes, the cutting scraps, pins, needle, thread, patterns together and organized while on the move, I put together a “hexies on the go” kit about four years ago!
