With just 10 EPP hexies per side, you can make an English Paper Piecing (EPP) tree-shaped ornament for your Christmas tree. If you are new to EPP, this is a great starter project. With their gently-cornered angles, the hexagon shapes are easy to work with, and for this project the paper pieces stay in, so there is one less step to complete. Use a coordinated fabric collection like I did, or use up a fun mix from your scrap basket. If you feel fancy, embellish with buttons or beads before joining the two sides together.
English Paper Piecing is an old technique that stabilizes and stitches two pieces of fabric together. Our EPP Hexagon Flower Garden Table Topper provides an overview of English Paper Piecing.
