Get out the knife!

Yep, this is the scary part of this process but I love a challenge!    I finished piecing the background for my horse and added  fusible web on the back of it.  I'm fusing the cut out to the hex horse fabric (I kept the paper from the fusible on while cutting).   Now to get out the X-Acto knife!!!

Background pieced

I ironed a horse freezer paper template on top of background....and started to cut away.  It wasn't so bad except for cutting into the seams.

 I figured if I made a mistake, while cutting out the horse, I could always make another background, right!

TaDa!!!  He's cut out!!!  Whew!!!

I think the cut out horse would make a great addition to another project!  And since it has fusible web on the back of it, easy to use!

And the horse looks pretty cool!  Now I hope the hex fabric will look as good under the cut out!

I've removed all the paper hex pieces and hope to get the background fused on Thursday.   Now I need to be extra careful with the placement to make sure all areas are filled in and I don't move the background piece as I'm ironing/fusing it to the hexies! I love stress or what!!!

You have learned that it'should only fabric and if you make an error nobody dies. Also you seem to have learned the art of giving yourself enough time instead of waiting until the last minute. Neither of which I'may any good with. Good job it looks great and I'd bet money the horse and the background piece play off each other perfectly.

Well done, and I can't wait to see what you do with the red/blue cutout horse. It looks so nice! And the hex horse reveal can't be too far off now.
