I saw this wonderful link but it is in Portugeese and I can't find the interpretor button but I saw this template and wondered if anyone has ever come across one. Thanks for any info :)

Hi Teresa! If you have a Translate on your Toolbar that will work. Just to let you now the measurements stay metric. I was able to translate some since Portuguese is close to Spanish.
It said to get the template at We Care About but they don't have it. So I checked around and Nancy's Notions has it in different sizes that you will need for $19.99 in acrylic.
She does mention a mold, but does not show it and even others have emailed her regarding it, but no reply yet.
If you don't have the translate tool, just PM me and I will give you the measurements and the fabric color you will need. It will be metric, I was never go with metric in school.

Hope that helps

Teresa, I haven't seen one but if you find out will you let me know?
I did buy some fiskars hexagon punches in 3 sizes at Joann's and they work great with card stock.
The sewing machine organizer on the site is so pretty!
If you figure out how to translate will you send e-mail me the directions?

Supplies you need: Fabric-White,Pink and blue and scraps of yellow and green. Embroidery green thread. The Hexagon ruler from what I see and measured your hex's are 2" for the yellow and 3" for the pink,green and blue. Just to make sure experiment.

Now this is in metric and I don't know how to convert maybe you girls know how. 45x77 cm in white,50x80cm also in white. 20 cm of blue fabric, 20 cm of pink fabric and scraps of yellow and green. She also mentions 50x80 cm of a acrylic blanket and 2 rectangles of 25x35 cm of acrylic blanket. Now others have emailed her asking for this acrylic mold or pattern, but she still has not replied. I'm going to try and make it and what I don't understand, I will just look at the pictures. It can't be too hard.

I hope this helps

Yvette - You are sew sew sweet to try and figure this one out for me. I am not good with Metric but I have a DD that I can go to when I need help with math. I once posted a question on a facebook page that didn't get answered either and then came across the same one that others were having the same difficulty ... well I YELLED my posting this time in rather blunt but nice language and it finally got heard. I hate YELLING :) :)

Sharon - I don't think I have seen these Fiskars Hexagon Punches at Joann's. Will have to check them out. Thanks for the tip.

Sides - That is the most interesting way of making hexies. You definitely would need to make sure your template pieces were accurately cut and I would be hand stitching or blanket stitching with invisible thread.

Thanks so much for sharing everyone!!! So many different templates and ideas out there to try.
