Anyone who likes English paper piecing knows how important is to have proper Hexagon templates.
Thee are many places for buying them.
I offer you an easy way to print and prepare so many as you need.
You should follow these simple steps.

1.Print the template from here.
Or from here. At the bottom of the page there is octagon templates, too.

2. Fold twice and then again twice (or simply use the dotted lines for folding)

3. Staple the center of each hexagon.
 There is no problem you can see the printed instructions on the back side.
4. Cut round  hexagons carefully.

5.Unstaple and you will have 16 perfect 1 inch hexagons.

Print and cut so many hexagons as you need!
Happy English paper piecing!


  1. This is very clever! So much better than cutting the pieces individually. I pinned your great idea to my board at http://pinterest.com/nancycarol1225/quilts-that-inspire-me/

    1. Thank you, Nancy. They were 3 different patterns, but I decided to collect them in one. Thinking to draw other figures, that are used in English paper piecing.
