Hexagons on Stash Manicure

There is a great tutorial on making hexies on Stash Manicure I like the way she punches a hole through the centre of the paper and anchors the fabric with a pin. Nice.

  1. Tried this way tonight and it worked alright, but I think I prefer to anchor the pleat at each point to keep the fabric nice and flat, otherwise when the tacking is removed you'll just have a frill at the back won't you.

  2. Yay, someone else is doing it the way I do! I make a stack of hexies and then press them and they stay lovely and flat for sewing into flowers! I find this method helps me as I have lousy grip, the pin provide some weight and makes holding those teeny petals a little easier.
