Pdf patterns seem to be a daunting task especially for the novice sewer.
I’ve been sewing for 1 year now and here’s my opinion:
Pros: instant gratification you don’t have to wait for mail order patterns or drive to a store to find they don’t have what you need .
Pros: you only print out the item you need. Most packaged patterns include several articles in one envelope.
Cons: yes you have to tape the pieces together
Cons: the instructions are supper simple and may not be inclusive enough for a beginner.
How to get started:
Shop a Blog of your choice here’s mine
Psssst: they even have some free pdf downloads to get you started.
Select your pattern
Print , cut and tape together
Outline before cutting though. I use a black Sharpe.
I found these storing methods on the web
I store my pdf patterns like this. I’ve even hung the completed patterns in a small closet.
I use these hangers, they work like a charm
So get started. Try PDF patterns and let me know what you think? Post your projects and please leave a comment.
