It allows you to cut precisely even through multiple fabric layers. This Half Square Triangle die is part of the GO!

How to Die Cut Half Square Triangles-1" Finished Square :

For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.

  • Cut a 2 1/4" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 40 triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 640 triangles.

Die Tips: 

  • With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors. 
  • Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle.  Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board. 
  • Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch. 
  • It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
