How To Make A Half Square Triangle
Take two squares of the same size. They should be 1/2” larger than you want your trimmed HST.
1
Mark a line from corner to corner on the back side of one square.
2
Sew 1/4” away from one side of the line.
3
Flip it around and do the same on the other side.
4
Cut along the marked line.
5
Press open with the seam folded toward the darker fabric.
6
Trim to desired size.
7
That’s it! Each square pair gives you two identical HSTs.
