I don’t like it. Why didn’t I stop and take a photo? I was so into making diamonds, I didn’t stop and see what I was creating. And now it’s all together and darn if I didn’t lose my center circle and those blue ones make for odd shaped rosettes!
They have to come out. I made some various hexies and tried them out and found a solution. But it’s going to take a while. So far I’ve taken three out and what a chore that was with invisible thread! I learned:
- It’s going to be tricky since I removed the papers from the hexagons. So the ones I use to reconstruct will have to have the papers, so that means new ones – not using the old ones I take off elsewhere as I first thought.
- In order to rip out the stitches (which are very hard to see) I must put the two hexies with the seam between them right sides together, sit where the lamp is shining over my shoulder to make the stitches appear. Then I can see to rip.
- It’s a good thing I ties off at both ends of each small seam or the hexies would fall apart with this deconstruction
- Sew the three I am removing into a shape before I add them back.
