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.
For a Beginner Level version of the Hex Messenger Bag, try sewing the Prism style using full triangles instead of pieced strips. Instructions included with pattern.
