How to Die Cut Hexagon Shapes:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.Â
Note:Â Dies for GO! Hexagon-9" are interchangeable with GO! Hexagon-4 1/2" Sides (55438).
- Cut 9 1/2" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 8 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut four hexagons across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 12 hexagons.Â
