Accuquilt Go Hexagon Bookmark Tutorial...

Here's another quick tutorial...a bookworm bookmark. I have plenty of hexagon tutorials coming up, but this one is very easy. My favorite shape of all the Accuquilt Go cutters is the hexagon. I love them all, but this die makes it so easy to cut them.
The die has 3 sizes as you can see below.

For this bookmark, I used the middle size hexagon.

Cut 6 medium hexagons...see the previous post on how the machine and the dies actually work.

Sew them together to make a chain.

Turn over and iron open the seams flat.

Here's a close up.

Pin the chain of hexagons, right sides together to a piece of fabric. I used plain muslin.

Sew together with 1/4" seam allowance, all the way around the chain of hexagons. Follow the shape of the hexagons and pivot (with needle down) at each seam intersection.

Leave an opening at one of the ends for turning.

Trim away all the excess backing fabric after you've sewn the seams. It's easier to trim the fabric after you've sewn it together rather than trying to cut the shape out first.

Clip a little at the seams for ease in turning inside out.

I used a chop stick to push the fabric when I turned it right side out.

Iron flat and sew opening closed.

Glue on some googly eyes or stitch some on.

and your done!!!

Buy that perfect book for someone special, tuck in this bookmark and sign the backing fabric with your name, date and a message. Great gift and very easy.
