PATTERN : EPP Hexagon Pouch Pattern


This Hexagon Pouch is a great way to show off lots of Liberty prints at once and will be a lovely introductory project to English Paper Piecing (EPP). Pouches like this one make thoughtful handmade gifts and, using these instructions you will be able to sew many more for friends and family.

The traditional EPP hand sewing method will be used to make the outside of the pouch. You will find that with these instructions that the EPP method is actually very simple- and addictive! Once the EPP has been completed, construction of the pouch is simple and quick. It is a great project for a beginner sewer to make using the sewing machine, or by hand with a needle and thread. You will learn how to insert a simple zip and line the pouch for a neat finish inside as well as out.

This project is perfect for using Liberty Tana Lawn as the outside hexagons and lining fabric. Liberty Quilting Cotton would also be a good choice for the lining. If not Liberty, any light weight cotton fabric will also suit.
