    Sewing.jpg

    I have recently started sewing, as my Grandfather gave me all my Grandmother's dressmaking accessories.

    I made this Christmas nightie and shorts for my kids for Christmas. I also made giant Christmas faux fur stockings.

    I have to admit though, I'm not a big fan of patterns- is that normal?

    Default Show me your sewing!

    I never liked the folded-up paper patterns like the ones my mum used- I used to just make things up as I went along. But I really like the PDF patterns you can buy online and print out - they seem much simpler and usually come with detailed instructions these days.

    Thanks! I just used 3mm mdf so it's really light!

    I agree, I've only used one paper pattern and I hated it, I much prefer PDF patterns.

    So with those patterns, do you print them on A4 paper and stick them together to use?

    Know it wasn't directed at me, but yep, print and stick together.

    If they have layered the sizes, you can choose which size to print. I usually just print all layers and then trace all the different sizes and ziploc bag them with labels :-)

    This is how I keep my patterns - I get the display folders with the clear pocket thing on the front, then put in the tutorial part, cut and tape the pattern to the largest size, then trace and cut smaller sizes on baking paper, label them and put them in the sleeves at the back, so it's all kept together and easy

    Awesome, thanks. I don't really like many of the patterns in the books in Spotlight but I'm sure there's a lot more to choose from online. I am so excited for the school holidays to finish so that I can get stuck into it!

    I went through about 10 books in spotlight before I found one dress that I kind of liked for my daughter lol! But online the patterns are way more modern. My favourites are pattern emporium, the tutorials are super easy to follow.
