One of the things I bought at the AQS show in Des Moines was a set of the mylar hexies. I have been thinking about making hexies for awhile as I have been seeing them a lot online, but wasn't fond of the idea of cutting all those paper hexies. And let's admit it...I didn't know if I would actually do it. So hated to start. After watching a demo of using the mylar hexies at the show, I ordered (they were out) a set of the 1" hexies to try it out. They came Saturday, so I got busy!
