Pre-cut Fusible Hexie Tutorial

Here is a tutorial on how to use the Pre-cut fusible Hexies.
Supplies needed
Pre-cut hexies (I used 1 1/2" hexies)
Glue pen
3 1/2" square of fabric
Needle and thread
Iron a pre-cut hexie onto the 3 1/2" fabric square.
Using your scissors cut around the hexie leaving a 1/4" fabric allowance for folding.
Using your glue pen draw a line of glue at the top edge of one side of the fused hexie.  You can see the blue strip where I have placed the glue.
Fold down the fabric and press to stick.
Repeat on the next side.
Repeat again until all your sides are stuck down.
Turn over.  You now have a finished hexie. 
 You don't have to remove the fused hexie.  It is a thin interfacing and will wash away over time.
Sew your hexies together to make flowers, a pillow or a whole quilt.
These are very addictive.  If you try this method I would love to see them.  Please post photos on my facebook page.
I hope this tutorial was helpful.  If you have any questions please ask I am happy to help.

Facebooking has overtaken blogging.

Hi everyone it's been so long since I've posted on here.  I've been spending too much time posting on Facebook.

Since January I've been very busy.  I was working a fulltime temp job for 6 weeks for ME Bank but decided office work is not what I want to get back into so I decided to go back to school.  I'm currently studying Certificate IV in Childrens Services and I'm loving it.  6 weeks and then I'm finished.  I did placement at a kinder with 3 and 4 years olds.  I loved working with the children and watching them learn and I learnt so much from them too.  I've had a few job opportunities so hopefully when I'm done they work out for me.

Haven't had much time to sew anything to sell so I've been working on projects that I've been wanting to make for myself and the family.  Here are a few things I made before Christmas which I didn't post about.

I made a few Christmas table runners for presents so I got into table runner mode and here they are.

A Christmas table runner for my mother in law and I made one the same for my sister in law too.
WIP ~ Christmas table runner.  Will be listing this in my shop when finished.

I also had a custom order quilt to make before Christmas.  The customer requested Minnie Mouse fabric, lots of pink and also personalised.  I love how it turned out so cute and girly.  She loved it.

I have lots more to show you but won't overload you with photos.

Have a great day.
