How to Die Cut 4" Finished Half Square Triangles:

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

  • Cut a 5 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 14 triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 84 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.
