Stab the threaded needle of the awl through all the layers of fabric you are sewing.
Thick material is very hard to puncture. Be careful not to puncture yourself in the process.
If you are having difficulty puncturing the material, you can use a vice to hold the material in place, or place something on the backside of the material to puncture into. A rubber eraser works great.
