Curved Hexie Stitch Along - Part 4
We're making curved hexies with THREE pieces this week! Aren't these cute!
There is a story behind the fussy cut fly...
We were getting a fly or two in the house earlier this summer. I made fly traps (see link HERE) for our back patio and they have caught literally hundreds of flies! This has been the summer of fly traps.
The fly fabric is an older Tula Pink line.
To make this hexie, mark S2 on two opposite sides of the hexie paper. Make 6 of these. I also made a hexie with one fabric for the center of the flower.
Sew the hexies together as show above. I only had enough scraps to fussy cut 3 flies so I fussy cut another motif on another section of the same fabric to make the other 3 hexies.
Stitch the flower to one side of the center unit as shown.
About removing papers....you may remove any paper piece that is completely surrounded by other stitched pieces if you like. I plan to keep all my paper in place for now though.
Have fun with this!
