Can someone help me figure out how to piece this? I can't find the instructions how to piece it together. I'm stuck from the bow down.


Thank you!

sometime free comes with a cost. :lol:

ok. now to get serious.

1. cut 4 Bs
2. cut 2 Hs
3. Cut 2 Ls
you need one of each remaining piece

Unit 1 - sew a B to each end of the A
Unit 2 - sew D to E; then sew F to the D
Unit 3 - sew a B to the M
Unit 4 - sew a B to the N
Unit 5 - sew an H to J
Unit 6 - sew an H to K
Unit 7 - sew an L to each side of the bottom triangle on I

sew the C to the bottom of Unit 1
sew Unit 2 to the C
sew Unit 7 to the G
using a Y-seam, sew Unit 5 to the G + Unit 7
using a Y-seam, sew Unit 6 to the other side of the G + 7
sew Unit 3 to the left side
sew Unit 4 to the right side

Refer to the hexagons tutorial for tips on stitching Y-seams.

show us a picture when you're done, please. :-)

Thanks everyone.

Oh Patrice, a GREAT BIG HUG is coming to you, THANK YOU!

P.S. where I messed up is on the chin area, there is supposed to be a white triangle so the bow tie sticks out and I used black. Oh well.
