Weekend reading! Hexie tutorials!
For the girls wanting to learn hexies with me here are some tutorial and template links to get you started. If you read through at least a few of these you will get the general idea, there are a few different techniques for basting and joining but it seems to mostly depend upon your personal preference. I have noted in my links if I used a particular technique in my starting. I will come back in following days with some project idea links and share my beginning thoughts and experience in a post too.
Chase has shared this Great tutorial with lots of pictures. Includes basting and joining technique.
Jenelle shares this tutorial with templates for three different sizes.
Robin shows a way of joining a flower where the centre and radial sides are joined at once.
Kati Recycles plastic milk bottles for templates!
Amy from badskirt put together this great text doc.
which I used as my starting point and I love this finishing technique she has shared
Kathy Shares these 1 inch templates these are what I have started with.
So far I think that there are 4 or five of us willing to give this a try for the first time :)
Have a great weekend
Looks like lots of inspiration there to look through T. I'm sure when I get some time to have a good look it won't seem so daunting.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see what you have been making with your hexies.
