Learn How to Sew a Hexie Hand Towel with this Sewing Tutorial
How to Sew Hexies - English Paper Piecing Tutorial
Repeat this process around the entire hexagon.
With a hot iron, press the hexie.
Aren't these hexies just adorable?
Once you have sewn all five hexies it's time to attach them together
Place the hexagons with right sides together.
Insert the needle through the tip of the corner to secure the hexies together and pull the thread until you reach the knot at the end.
You will be joining the hexies together using small whipstitches. Carefully whipstitch the entire edge together taking care not to sew into the template.
Repeat this process with all five hexagons making sure they are lined up properly before sewing them together.
Once all five hexies are joined together lay them on top of the tea towel.
At this point, you can whipstitch the entire shape to the tea towel or use Thermoweb Fabric Fuse to attach them. I like to use this specific glue because it's permanent but once it dries it remains flexible.
Once the hexies have been attached and have had sufficient time to dry, place an embroidery hoop over the towel and use embroidery floss to do a backstitch around the perimeter of the hexagon shape.
Now it's time to hang up your adorable hexie dish towel and admire your hard work!
I don't know if I missed something or I just don't understand. does the template stay with the hexie even after sewn onto the towel? What happens to the template when you wash the towel?

Hi, Patti! The template gets removed once the hexies have been sewn together. 🙂
