    DIY Triangle Thingies

    Here's a set of DIY Triangle Thingies I whipped up for fun. A great easy project!

    I started out with 11.5" equilateral 1.1 ripstop fabric triangles and used 1" grosgrain for the trim and attachment points. The attachment points were 3.5" of GG folded in half then sewed along the edge. I initially wasn't going to trim it with GG, but I didn't like how the hems turned out due to the grain of the fabric stretching weirdly while hemming. They ended up 10" to a side when finished.

    16gm for the pair.

    I've looked at these things a couple of times, and im not saying i wouldnt try em, but every time i see them it brings to mind a particular style of underwear typically more popular with young mal-adjusted females.

    Just don't try them as underwear......leave that to the young females.

    Thanks all!
