I got an idea in my head, so had to try it. I have way too much time on my hands, lol.
I wanted to try my large hexagon die with a fussy cut. Of course I had nothing that worked in that size.
So, I remembered the charm packs that I won and thought, these would work perfect.
The nice thing is, they fit the die just about right, what little I lose on one edge, doesn't effect it, since I have a 1/4" seam and that part goes under. I appliqued the picture hexagons onto the other colors and then thought, maybe I can put a plain square in between. Not sure if I like it as is, I might add a smaller hexagon in the middle of the large or do a snowflake stitch on them.
I just threw the colors together, I can plan it out better, once I get enough to finish a lap sized.
I think this would be nice with a machine satin stitch, and if I turned the edges over better.
I also added more to my hippie piece. I realized that it is a good memory piece for me. The first time I met my husband was when a friend asked me to go to a concert, and Bill was driving. We went to see an outdoor free concert by Aerosmith, and he was driving a blue VW. I wish I had added more hair, yes mine is that thick, lol. I was a blond then, but the brown shows up better. I plan on adding "Dream On", in stitches, since that is Aerosmith's first song, thought it would be perfect for this piece.
Nice and Simple
