2 inch Diamonds 60°
Print on fabric and get better results than with 60° diamond and triangle acrylic templates or other traditional methods.

REQUESTED BY Inklingoist Tilde Binger
Tilde asked for the diamond and half diamond in 2006 to add even more design options for Inklingo Shape Collection # 1 (sold out).
Tilde wrote the wonderful FREE pattern called Tilde’s Tiny Totes. She is one of the first people I told about Inklingo when I was developing it. She is a wonderful freind [sic]. We are both fans of Jane Austen too.
