I fell in love with the gfg ever since I saw a link in the BOM I am doing with Craftsy. Heaxagons and EPP were one month's block. The 'to do or not to do" dilemma lasted for a month or two. Too many people were talking about how they have been doing it for two/three years. And of course a big problem for me was the access to fabric. I looked through my wardrobe to see which ones I could turn into scraps. And dithered. Finally I got my hands on some floral fabrics thanks to a warm-hearted friend who shopped on my behalf and with some scraps have made a start.
I am cutting the hexagons on the go - meaning when i have a small stack of them I start stitching them up. I am experimenting with stiff plastic, invitation cards, paper and even glossy prospectus to cut the hexagons. And so starts my journey as of July 22, 2012.
Cutting the hexagons by hand does make them not so perfect. While making up the flowers, the difference in size though miniscule prevents the seams from matching up. Does anyone have a tip to help overcome this problem? And no, I do not have access to buying pre-cut hexagons.
