How to make a Lemon Squeezy Hexie
First you need to cut out your hexagon. This type of hexie will probably work better with a larger hexagon.
Cut your shapes out, but be careful to make sure that they stay in the same place. So when you're cutting, place the shapes exactly as they are in your hand. These are not exact measurements, so if they are not in the correct place, they may not fit.
TIP: If things get mixed up, use the triangles on the paper to line things back up like a puzzle.
In row 1 and 2, line up the straight edge on the half-circle to the straight edge of the little end piece, then sew.
When the three "rows" are sewn together, then sew row 1 to 3, then row 3 to 2. It just makes things flow easier this way.
I hope you're enjoying the hexalong. I know I've never done anything like this before, but am enjoying the process of making these little things. I don't quite have a plan as to how I'll put them together, but I like each one.
