  1. It’s quite easy. Sew your hexagons in half only. Then sew the halves together in strips. Join the strips together ensuring the halves match.

  2. I have sewn the two inch strips together and cut out but the template is bigger than the material. Do I need to leave 1/4″ for the seam allowance?

  3. It’s bigger yes. Just treat it as a regular ruler. Align the top of the template with the top edge of the fabric.
