There has been so many new pattern releases recently and a bigger and bigger percentage of these patterns we use are being offered as PDF Patterns. These are the patterns that are downloaded on your computer, that you print out on your home printer. The pages are tiled and taped or glued together to form large pattern sheets.
I thought it might be nice to share how I put these together. I've been working with PDFs more and more recently and have developed a pretty speedy way of getting them together fast, ready to sew.
- Some Tape - I buy cheap small dispensers like this because they are easy to cut.
- Scissors - Not your fabric ones but some normal paper ones
- Ruler - All will be revealed
- Pattern weight of some kind - I have these ribbon ones made from washers but tins or cutlery would work just fine!
Have you got any tips or tricks for cutting your PDF Patterns?
