Sewline glue pen
Needle
Thread
Thread Snips

First off let me say that there are many different ways to English Paper Piece, I will share my methods with you today!  Okay, let's get ready to have some fun!

1. Start by using the glue pen on one side of the paper template.

2.  Place sticky side of the template on the center of the wrong side of the fabric.

3. Trim the edges, I usually leave a 1/2" allowance on all sides.

13.  Once you have two hexagons based, you can join them together with a ladder stitch.  First place hexagons on top of each other right sides together.

14. Start at one corner.  Sew through both hexagons. Your needle will go right below the top edge of the hexagon and right above the paper template.  Pull the needle and thread through.
