When you begin to sew you will be stitching on both those lines. Every thing proceeds the same way as the original tutorial. When you have all four sides sewn and pressed you turn over your square and clip off the excess fabric.This is important: Cut between the two sewn lines. DO NOT CLIP YOUR FRONT TRIANGLE. The triangles you cut off can now be taken to the ironing board. When you press, set the seam first and then open out the triangle and press to the dark. You now have a 1/2 squared triangle to square up. I use my "Easy Angle Junior" for this. Using the 3 1/2 inch secondary squares I end up with a 2 1/2 inch square.
These are the half squares I made (one of them is not trimmed yet.)
