I've wanted to try hexagons for a few years, but have been intimidated by them, so I had to go in search of help. I'm using the freezer paper technique that I learned from Kaaren and another nice blogging friend, but I forgot her name! (I'm so sorry!)
The tips that they shared that I think were very useful were:
1. Trace your hexies to the paper side of one sheet of freezer paper.
2. Put at least two more sheets of freezer paper under the top sheet that has the traced shapes.
3. Staple in two places within the hexagon shape before cutting them out.
This way you will accurately cut three shapes with one cut.
4. Use a paper punch to put a hole in the middle of the freezer paper shape.
This will aide in the removal of the paper when the project is done.
5. Cut out the traced shapes and remove staples.
I'm not going for any particular pattern with my hexies, I just want to use funky fabric only and make it really random. I really like sewing them and am glad I jumped in and finally learned how to make them!
