I was lucky enough to have my grand-daughter Alyssa here for a few hours last week, and the two of us made all these hexies using some of the fabrics I’m using for The Splendid Sampler blocks.  We had such great fun, we laughed and giggled the whole time.

Hexies

Alyssa was able to cut hundreds of these hexagons using the Sizzix Big Shot machine and the hexagon die I bought.  It was the first time I’ve tried it, so we watched a YouTube video first and then she started cutting.

In very little time, she had a charm pack cut into hexagons.  Then I taught her how to prepare them using hexagon templates.  The only thing we couldn’t do was to fussy cut.  I’ll still have to do those by hand.

Alyssa wanted to try cutting wool, so we pulled some scraps and ran it through the machine.  It worked great and I had a hard time getting her to quit.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
