Playing with Hexagons // In the "Studio" + Giveaway
This week I had the sudden urge to play with some hexagons and do some English Paper Piecing. I didn't have a specific project in mind, I just wanted to simply play! I figured this would make a super fun In the "Studio" video for episode #10. Watch and see how I glue baste my hexagons and the different ways you can stitch them together.
Using this technique for English Paper Piecing is really great because the pre-cut hexagons are not cut from your typical card stock paper, they are actually a leave-in
applique foundation. This means no more spending time taking the papers out when your done! You can stitch right through them, when washed they get super soft and have a beautiful loft. In this video I experimented with a few different ways to stitch them together, the possibilities are endless!
If you want to try this fun technique you can purchase a English Paper Piecing Starter Kit
in my shop, this kit includes everything you need to get started.
Usually on Fridays I host Fabric Giveaway Friday so this week I decided to give away my own prize! I will be giving away a $20 gift card to the Pile O' Fabric shop
