This Technique is Great for Pouches, Totes and Much More!
Do you love hexies but dislike the hand-sewing that’s involved in creating them? This clever idea recreates the look without hand sewing.
Simply fuse hexies to a background and sew around each one with a decorative stitch that mimics the look of hand-sewing. Voila. Beautiful hexies.
This is an easy way to dress up just about anything. The pouch shown here is a lovely example. Or consider creating a “hexie” tote, table mat and much more.
The process was developed by Debbie at Happy Little Cottage. She uses Heat n Bond to fuse the hexies to a background.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
