How to use the Easy Angle Ruler, Step OneThis ruler is designed to be used for half square triangles. Lay it over a strip of fabric (matching the line on the ruler) to cut your first triangle (the picture thumbnail to the left). Then flip it to cut the second one (the picture thumbnail to the right). The numbers along the side of the ruler give the size of the HST you will make using each of the strip sizes shown. Fast - Accurate!

Built in 1/4" seam allowance.  These rulers cover all the bases. They're thick and sturdy, so they'll stand up to years of wear. Cut triangles, squares, and attic window shapes all from the same strip of fabric.
