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. 

Note: 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.

Die Tips: 

  • With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors. 
  • Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle.  Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board. 
  • Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch. 
  • It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
