My favorite way to bust my fabric stash is making doll clothes. Barbie clothes help get rid of even itty bitty pieces!
But tiny paper pattern pieces get torn up quickly, especially if you use them often like I do. So to keep my patterns intact, I transfer them to poster board.
First, I lay the pieces out on my copy machine…
No need to cut them out, just a trim will do :)
Doll patterns often have piece names and instructions outside the pattern piece.
So cut the patten piece out, then use a glue stick to glue it to the poster board. You can glue the information to the back of the pattern piece.
If the piece is too small, or if its easier for you than glueing, just write the instructions on the back. Easy peasy!
Here’s my favorite part. Use a hole punch, and link the pattern pieces together with a carabiner! Now, it hangs up nicely and out of the way.
Guess what? We have a naughty elf in my house.
I’ve made two sets of wintery themed pajamas for the brats…I’ll post them soon. It’s hard to get them all together and cooperating at the same time.
Also, I have a pattern review for an easy hand bag in the works.
And really- I really will get you a photo of Pattern Alteration Attempt II- my second go at this weeks earlier post, Pullover Vs. Poncho. I finally picked up a red shirt.
I know I’m getting lazy with my photos again. I didn’t crop one of the photos above and you can see the edge of scissors. And the white on white = not good. It’s been such a busy week…I just can’t force myself to care. Here’s a cute photo I took-maybe it can make up for the boring/sucky ones?
These boots belong to my daughter and nephews
Here’s a pic of me. I used the InStyle app to give me a blond, medium length hairstyle. It was easier than trying to make my hair look good in real life, so I went with it.
That’s all folks!
