We can easily imagine them in red, white and blue for the 4th of July, and in Christmas colors as well.
The tutorial provides excellent instructions for making English paper pieced hexies. If you haven’t tried them before this is a good project to begin with.
Pre-cut hexies in solid fabrics are specified in the instructions. Search Google for them, as the listed source is out of stock. You may need to purchase an assortment of solid fabrics and cut your own. A charm pack would work well for this.
To make your own cutting template, use the hexie template that’s provided. Transfer it to card stock or other heavy paper (or thin cardboard) and add 1/4″ on all edges for the seam allowance. Cut out the shape and use it for cutting out hexies.
Or, purchase a good hexie ruler, such as the Fons and Porter Hexagon Ruler, to make short work of cutting hexies from strips.
The hexies in this project are 2″ on each side.
