Instant gratification Part 2: Using PDF sewing patterns
Just click to buy and print, and the pattern is ready to go. The only down side to this process is that the patterns you print yourself must be assembled before you can sew with them.
Since you print the pattern pages on standard 8. Most PDF patterns come with a square — usually on the first page or two, but not always — that measures exactly one inch on all sides. If not, adjust your print settings and try again! You may notice for a PDF pattern that some pages contain sewing instructions and others contain the actual pattern templates. Putting together a PDF pattern is a lot like assembling a puzzle — this piece fits into that one and before you know it, it looks like a dress or a bag, skirt, toy, etc.
Most pattern instructions will tell you which pieces to put together, so spread them out on a large table or floor and get to work matching them up in the right order. You may have to cut one of the pages so that the cut edge is flush with the end of the drawn pattern line, but it is helpful to keep the extra paper on the second page so you have something to stabilize the join between the two pages.
When you have the lines meeting correctly, use clear tape to tape the two pattern pages together. Some sewing enthusiasts find that traditional printer paper is too thick to use as a sewing pattern, so they prefer to transfer the PDF pattern to a piece of pattern paper.
To transfer the PDF printed pattern to pattern paper, lay the PDF pattern on a hard surface such as a table or a hard floor. Position a piece of pattern paper on top of this, and use a pencil to trace the outlines of the pattern markings onto the pattern paper.
Make sure you transfer all of the pertinent markings, and not just the outlines of the pattern pieces! Remove the pattern paper and cut around the edges to use it in your sewing project.

Bonus- free embroidery pattern with newsletter sign up. Great tips, Heather! So if I mess up one I can just print it again! Or if I decide to alter it to suit me which I seem to always do then I still have the original for reference. Weights hold the pieces down perfectly. I store them hanging big pieces or in an artist canvas portfolio.
Thank you for sharing. But is there a site I can go to to learn the best way to take my patterns and make them downloadable? Do most people scan them and change them to PDF files? Thank you very much for explaining this. I transfer my pdf patterns to sheer fabric that pockets in mens trousers is made from.
I can keep these patterns for further use. Hello Glenda, That sounds really interesting. Do you worry about it fraying or do you clean finish the edges somehow?
Thanks for the pdf pattern tips Heather. What would be the easiest way to cut the fabric with a seam allowance? Hello Jacquie, Seam allowance is up to the designer. Personally, I prefer to add it and make it easier for the end-user. Be sure to check the pattern instructions before cutting into your fabrics.

This is a pattern cutting technique that Julian has shared with many around the world through lectures and demonstrations of the subtraction cutting method. The techniques often build from the shape of an initial flat piece of material. This initial material is then sliced or opened up with holes, allowing the material to be twisted upon itself, fed through itself or enlarged with more pieces of fabrics. The resulting garments make the most of the volume of the fabric and often look incredibly complex. Individual garments are often very reminiscent of the work of Japanese designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto and can also often be worn in more than one way, using the placement of your body and limbs to change the shape of the garment.
I am so excited to be here telling you all that my new pattern is here! The Collins top is It is A-line in shape, perfect for hot summer days. It features a round neck, panel lines, a high-low hem and a centre-back opening, with a button and loop closure. Due to its length, the Collins Top is the perfect top to pair with skirts or trousers that sit on or above the natural waist. As always, this pattern is available in 10 sizes, from bust 76cm 30in - cm
So this is what I aim to demonstrate in this Post, breaking it down into hopefully digestible stages with graphics to illustrate. I started using my Cricut in my sewing by customising fabric, cushion covers and tops with iron-on vinyl — which is enormous fun! For my first project, I decided to make a pay-for pattern in Cricut Access; a quilted, zippered pouch to store a tablet as a birthday gift for my Mother-in-Law… and yes I personalised the inside with a message cut using Iron-on Vinyl!
