Do you know what I hate? This thing. This ugly horrible thing.
Look at it! It’s awful. I’m sure everyone has had one of these monsters at some point. I think it came with some sewing kit I bought a hundred years ago. So today, since I finished binding my latest quilt fairly early, I decided to do this small project that I bought the felt for last week.
I saw these last week on Modern Handcraft’s Instagram, and found she had a tutorial to make them on her site. Click on the image above to check it out!
Fortunately, I had a bit of space fabric left over from the 3D Space Quilt I sold last week. Unfortunately, I do not have a Sizzix cutter to make the little felt hexagons. Rotary cutter it is! I used my cutting mat’s 30 degree angle guide to get the angles right. In the following image, where the little blue hexagon is, the 30 degree line goes through a half-inch marker. That’s how I made sure all the sides were a half inch, by using those two lines together to do my cutting.
