When making multiple half square triangles for a project, my favorite method is using Triangles On A Roll™. Here is the process.
The rolls are 50 feet long and divided into squares.
Each square will make 2 half square triangles.
Instructions are printed multiple times on the paper.
Cut off the amount of paper needed for the number of half square triangles you’re making. In this case we are making 8. Layer the two fabrics right sides together. It doesn’t matter which fabric is on top or bottom. Place pins in some of the open areas.
Trim around the paper.
Following the arrows, sew on the dashed lines.
Trim on the solid outer lines.
Trim on all the inner solid lines.
Remove the papers. To do this, hold your thumb on top of the seam allowance and tear the triangle shape paper along the seamline.
Press toward the dark fabric.
Trim off the nubs.
Your half square triangles are ready to roll!
