With right sides together, place one of the remaining hexagons on the row with 2 hexagons, matching raw edges. With the sewn hexagons on the bottom, start sewing at the 1/4" mark. Stop stitching when you reach the opposite 1/4" mark. The mark will be above the open seam of the sewn hexagons. This will allow you to pivot everything in order to turn the corner.
Leaving the needle in the work, lift the presser foot and pivot the top hexagon so it aligns with the raw edge of the hexagons underneath. Lower the presser foot and continue sewing to the 1/4" mark. Press the seams open. Repeat with the remaining outer hexagon row.
Trim the excess batting and lining even with the outer bag unit. Make a 1/4" deep snip at the edges where the seams are pressed open. This will allow more give when the bag is sewn up.
Referring to steps 1-4, sew the inner bag lining hexagons together in the same manner.
Sew the sides of the outer bag together by stitching the fabric A hexagons together on each edge as shown.
Begin sewing with reinforcing stitches at the folded edge. Stop stitching at the 1/4" mark.
Sew the fabric B hexagons together along two edges as shown. Begin sewing at the inner 1/4" mark and sew toward the top of the bag. Stop sewing at the 1/4" mark. Finger press the seams open.
When you have stitched all the way around, snip the excess fabric from the hexagon points.
Turn the bag through using the unsewn gap in the inner lining. Slipstitch the gap closed. Use a point turner and seam creaser tool to push out the points if necessary.
Roll the top edges of the bag between your fingers to get a crisp edge. Tack in place and secure with a line of quilting 1/4" from the top edge.
