To kick off this week, we’re giving our prize from Friday away to one lucky winner! On Friday we asked, “How do you store your patterns?”
Thank you all for answering! You guys are much more organized than I am. You gave me some great ideas for pattern preservation and storage!
Our winner is…Wendy! I loved Wendy’s method:
“I cut out my pattern pieces with enough margin, saving all of the sizes. I trace the size I want onto paper that’s intended for use on doctor’s exam tables. It is easy to see the lines through it. For pieces that are too large, I usually use glue stick to add more paper (glue stick doesn’t shrink when ironed. I fold and iron the used pieces to fit the envelope then tuck them back in when done inside the instruction papers. Nothing torn! When I expect to have to reuse a pattern many times, I will trace the size I need onto the 24×36 inch graph paper that grade schools use…..I get it at Staples. -Wendy”
Congratulations Wendy! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address to receive your prize! (the pattern shown above and some tailor’s chalk!)
Have a great Monday and a great week!
