I made a start on cutting out some hexagons this morning and carried on this afternoon, I have about 30 cut so far.
I'm just loving all of the combinations that can be done using just a small amount of these-
I'm planning on making a square (or maybe rectangular) cushion cover with this little bunch, not quite sure how many I'll actually need (I don't think I'll work that out just yet as I may end up putting myself off!).
Like many people though, I'm very guilty of sitting in front of the tv
It's really easy to get started on these - this is all the kit I need for the moment -
I found a sheet of hexagons online (I'm not sure where it was, but if you want it, leave me a comment and I'll email it to you - it's a pdf) so I made 1 cardboard template (from a cereal packet) slightly bigger than the hexagonal paper pieces and I'm using that to cut hexagons from my chosen fabrics.
I was also a little bit sneaky/lucky with some of these pieces of fabrics - while looking through fabric shops online, I found a few who offered free samples...... one of which you can see the back of in the photo above - it's a very pretty Tilda fabric, just the right size for a beautiful hexie!
And you know what all this cutting means? More of these -
Thanks to all of you who have already commented on yesterday's post and helped me out with my decisions on my laptop case design. I think I'll be spending a few more days thinking about it, so while I'm cutting out and sewing hexies, my mind will be wandering....
