... well I am not going to say 'perfect', but I wanted to practice making some smaller hexies, just because I thought they would be a super-quick and sweet skill to have in my 'virtual bag', (to go with my 'actual hexie' bag no less!).
So, with my trusty scrap box raided over the weekend, I made this...
... which I then turned into this today...
I found a brilliant tutorial (and remembered to Pin it) on binding non-right-angled corners, but this would have been just too small for a first attempt, and I was way too nervous about spoiling it, so I went square.
I suppose it could be a 'coaster' for want of a title and use; it measures 5" square, the edges of the individual hexagons are a 1/2" and I think it is rather cute.
I also used my machine on the slow setting and it was wonderful! At first, my gung-ho nature swore I would never stitch at anything slower than maximum warp speed, but I was so wrong.
I've decided that this little hexster is going to go off to a new home in the morning, as a little surprise for someone ;)
