Several days ago I ran across a new (to me) blog called Faeries and Fibers. She has opened a Soupcon FLICKR Group
I was intrigued. Since I'm fairly new to the wonderful world of Hexies I decided it was time to spread my wings and try out a few more shapes. AND it was time for one or two more projects.
So I jumped right in and printed off a sheet of 1" hexies and added a few lines here and there and took away a few other lines until I came up with a 'Jewel' or a modified hexie (as Karen calls them).
Here's a link to one of her posts that explains how she does it. So much simpler than I did. Wish I would have read more of her blog before jumping in feet first. lol
This is a scrap of black/white fabric I used to fussy cut the six jewels.
Now.... let me just say that since I didn't really know what I was doing this first little star was a real stumbling mess. Thankfully I have a wonderful iron that pressed it into submission. lol
After this one I think I will be able to do a better job on the next one.
