How to make hexies with English Paper Piecing
Hexies are all the rage right now. They make for a fun portable project that you can sew just about everywhere. You just make up a bunch of hexies ahead of time throw them in a bag with a needle, thread and a thimble and you can spend idle time at the doctor, salon or airport just sewing away.
In today’s video tutorial I show you how to prep your hexies and sew them together in a grandmother’s flower garden pattern. When I started this project several years ago I was basting each one with thread. … Not fun … It was torture on my hands. Then I discovered Sewline Glue Pens. They’re awesome. You can use it to baste the fabric to the templates in about a minute and when you’re done you just pop the templates out and you’re good to go. It is so much easier on your fingers than getting a needle through the cardstock template.
I hope you enjoy today’s tutorial and use it to get your own portable sewing project going.
