Yes! I knew it could be done. Last year I was doing a skill builder of the month and spent lots of time trying to hand sew hexagons. I just can’t seem to get it right. The fact that I have sever injuries to both index fingers now, is part of the problem No feeling in one from cutting the end of in a hight school accident. And yes ladies rotary blades are dangerous. Cut a chunk out of my right index this year and still have immense pain when touching things.
Okay now that I’ve probably grosses every one out. Here is where to find a terrific tutorial. Sewing Hexies by Machine I tried it out and my starting results are below. Thanks Jacqueline from Tallgrass Prarie Studio for the tutorial.
Now my results aren’t perfect but thats because I was practicing on the hexagons I’d previously cut. They had been fused to a stabilizer hexagon and glue basted. I did not practice sewing individual hexagons to a row but started with sewing two rows together. It’s easy peasy! Right of course right. Look before you leap and of set the hexagons so you don’t end up with a three demential mess. I goofed starting put was easy enough to redo. This really is a simple way to do hexagons. One of my favorite things is that this makes seams easy to press open. Thanks Jacqueline from Tallgrass Prarie Studio for the tutorial.
