How to Die Cut Half Rectangle Triangles:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Cut a 8" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 20 half rectangle triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 80 half rectangle triangles.
