Lots of Hexies!

I am hooked on hexies!
I stitched a few while watching the Olymics and ran out of papers.
I made 100 of the cute little things and I couldn't find EPP papers in my area.
I posted a picture of my pretty stack of Hexies on Instagram and a fellow quilter came to the rescue. 
 (I love the online quilting community they are amazingly generous and friendly!)
She told me about this tool.
Fiskars X-Large Hexagon Squeeze Punch
It makes perfect 1 inch hexies!  
I found my punch at my local craft store in the scrapbook section.
I even used a coupon!
Woohoo!

This size is great for using precuts.
All you need is a 2 1/2inch square!

That means you can get:
1 hexie per candy square
4 hexies per charm square
16 hexies per layer cake square
17 hexies per jelly roll strip

This little tool is just too good not to share.

Happy Stitching!

  1. So good. I usually use smaller hexagons. May be they have a tool for smaller ones too? I buy them or cut them with scissors.

  2. I usually go to the link below and print on cardstock. I also use a hole punch and clipa hole close to the center. Makes removal easier. But, I am going to look for that Fiskars punch. Thank you.

  4. Lovely hexies. Thank you for sharing this tool I'm going to look for it next time I visit my local craft store. I've been printing my hexies on cardstock and the cutting can be tedious. I think the punch will make the job more enjoyable.
