Fold & Snip Method- Cutting Commercial Patterns

Fold & Snip Method- Cutting Commercial Patterns

Yesterday I told you I use a fold & snip method to cut commercial patterns. I use this method on multi size patterns that can’t be easily folded because its too curvy. Okay, I don’t even know if its a real technique…I just do it because I don’t want to transfer patterns. Ever. If I draw a pattern it will be because I drafted it myself. If I spend money on the pattern, it’s because I wanted someone else to do the dirty work for me!

Well, since I had a couple of you ask me what in the world I’m talking about, I put together a quick photo demo.

First, a disclaimer: my table has ceramic tile on it. My hubby did that because the original surface couldn’t handle the torture hot glue, ironing, painting etc that I was subjecting it to. The reason I’m telling you? Well, because it sort of looks like a floor! (But isn’t, I promise.)

Okay, on with the demo!!

After I cut around all my “snips”, I checked it against my pattern, and trued it. In other words, checked for accuracy. I ended up with a perfect fit! Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
