Default Hexagon table topper - cute and ... not too hard

Someone on this board posted this link:

The directions aren't extremely clear, but if you don't mind guessing a bit this is a quick project that - I think - looks really cool!

It was VERY EASY until I got to binding the corners that are not right angles. Made it though and will certainly do it again.

After Christmas last year I picked up Christmas fabric everywhere I found it cheap - the snowmen are from Walmart, but I'm not sure where the snowflake is from - it's a Moda print. I finally have enough of a stash to make small projects totally from what I have on hand.

A large scale focus fabric that is not directional would be easier to work with.

Just lovely.....very pretty fabric. Sometimes I find seasonal fabric a bit "too much", yours is seasonal without being OTT.

I made these too, for Thanksgiving, but I skipped the binding. I sewed them right sides together, left an opening, and turn them right sides out. Then I stitched around the edges with a decorative stitch about a half inch in to give them an appearance of binding. They were so easy, I'm making more for Christmas!

Love it. Want to make some of these and some table runners, but probably not this Christmas.
