Fig 1
Thread and tack to mark out the edges of an equilateral triangle no higher than 1.5 cm. Then make a herringbone stitch by having the needle exit the cloth along the lower left-hand angle pointing upward and making a small stitch from right to left.

Fig 2
Sewing again with the thread angling downwards to the right and then make a horizontal stitch exiting the cloth from the left-hand angle.

Fig 3
Sew again from top to bottom under the last stitch and then make a stitch to the left.
