Everyone is addicted to hexis! This pretty bag celebrates the hexagon, and is quick to stitch. The Hexi Bag is quilted and shaped, featuring hexagon flowers stitched to the base of the straps, a magnetic snap, and convenient inside pockets. It works in so many color and fabric combinations and is a perfect showcase for your favorite scraps.
