Hexagon Motif Project Bag


This Hexagon Motif Project Bag is a gorgeous way to take your projects with you...at the park, on the road, perhaps on a lunch break too. There's always a little time during the day to pick up your hook and crochet for a bit!  

This pretty project bag is one of many projects from our Hexagon Crochet Along (CAL)...have you joined in on the fun yet?  We're sharing all of our projects today...be sure to scroll down for links to each one.


Now let's make a bag, shall we?

You'll need 10 hexagons to begin, I made several from our CAL so it would look unique. (Join our Facebook community here to see the other hexagon patterns and what everyone is making!)  

I also made a few of my own Strawflower Hexagon Motif...get the pattern HERE (see photo below too):

Here are the materials needed to make your bag:

  • Knit Picks Brava Worsted (Colors pictured: “Fig” “Dove Heather” "Solstice" and “Denim”) Note: Any worsted weight yarn will work for this project.
  • For each hexagon you make the hook size will vary, just be sure your hexagons are about 5 inches across.
  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Scissors
A very special thank you to Knit Picks for supplying yarn for this project!


Again, you'll need 10 hexagons, each about 5 inches across.  Arrange the hexagons as shown in the photo below and seam them together with a tapestry needle and matching piece of yarn.  I used the super easy whip stitch as my seaming method.  Tip: When you make each hexagon, leave a long tail at the end.  You can use the tails to sew the hexagons together.

Important note: when seaming, be sure all hexagons are facing the same way (all right sides facing you, all wrong/back sides on the other side).



Once hexagons are seamed together, fold as shown below.



After folding, seam sides together.  Be sure bag is inside out (backs of hexagons facing outward).  I used the whip stitch for this as well.



Here are two helpful videos for this project:


 

To make the drawstring, hold two pieces of the same yarn together (I used two of the lighter blue) and make a chain about 22 inches long.  Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain on the bag and drawstring.  Thread the drawstring through the decorative holes from the hexagons at the top of the bag and tie closed.  All finished...lovely!

Be sure to checkout all of the other amazing projects today from the designers in our CAL! (links to each project below)



Happy crocheting everyone!
