Itty Bitty

Doing the Farmer's Wife blocks has given me the opportunity to use Thangles again. They remind me of paper piecing because your half square triangles turn out perfect. These are 1" half square triangles.

Thangles 1"


If you have never tried using Thangles before to make your half square triangles you might like them. There is no math. The only thing I do different from the directions is cut the fabric a little wider than 1/2". I like to have a little bit of wiggle room. It only adds an extra trim step.

I'm off to California for a week to see my dad. I will take my yo yo's so I don't go through complete withdrawal from sewing. 

Happy sewing.

Oh, I love Thangles! My HSTs have never looked better, and sometimes I really don't need to trim, which: bonus!
