Ok, I know that's not one word, but I can't help myself. This machine is wonderful. It's so easy to use, accurate and for me...it helps me create more and more beyond the norm.
She's thin and light weight...unlike me right now!
The order or placement of everything to cut fabric is...the die (foam up), fabric, then the cutting mat on top. I will show you details of this in the tutorials. Place the die up against roller...
turn handle to move die through machine...
and you're done!!!
The upcoming tutorials are...
Learn how to English Paper Piece hexagons. Click here.
This is the smallest sized hexagon.
A little ornament...not stuffed yet.
Largest hexagon used to make Grandmother's Flower Garden piece great for applique on a pillow.
but a quick way to sew it on the machine if you don't want to paper piece. Click here for machine sewing hexies.
I used the 2 1/2" strip cutter to cut the 3 different colored strips that I sewed together. Then I placed that in the Tumbler die to make the Candy Corn for Halloween. I alternated the striped candy corn with Halloween fabric cut with the tumbler too.
If you are not into English Paper Piecing, but love hexagons and Grandmother's Flower Gardens...how about using my favorite glue and sealer. MOD PODGE here we come!!
I haven't glued either of these designs down on this tray yet. I can't decide. Which one do you like? I also have a Christmas tree cut out, but forgot to take a picture of it.
How about taking 2 of the candy corns and 2 of the Halloween fabric that are cut with the Tumbler die and make the cutest treat bag to hand out to special Trick or Treaters. Click here for Candy Corn bag instructions.
Perfect size for lots of goodies!
Next is a hexie Book Worm Bookmark. I used the medium sized hexagon die for this. Super fast to make...and all on the machine. No hand sewing. Aren't his little eyes the cutest! Click here for tutorial.
and lastly here is a great little set for when you are having friends over for dinner. It's a hexagon place card holder and a matching hexie coaster. Click here for instructions.
