I love half square triangles, there are so many endless possibilities.
Here's how I make them,
I know there are other ways but this is my favorite and I never got the hang of thangles.
Finished size is 2 1/2"
I'm starting with a 3 1/2" square which will give me a 2 1/2" finished size. The rule of thumb is to add 7/8" to your finished size, I round it up to an 1". So if you want a 3" finished size cut a 3 7/8" square or in my case a 4" square.
First I cut my squares to 3 1/2 inches.
Then on the light squares I draw a diagonal line.
Then put your two pieces of fabric right sides together.
Then I sew a 1/4" on each side of the line.
Then cut on the diagonal line.
Iron the seam over to the dark side or you can iron the seam open.
Then I trim my block to 2 1/2" or whatever you desired size.
That's it very simple - then layout as desired.
Here's a link to different layout options. (Scroll to the bottom of the page.)
Plus other great craft ideas like pillows, aprons, etc.
