Monday Minute: Pattern Copying/Transferring

Hey All!!!

For today's Monday Minute I've got a brand spanking new video that I made just for you!!!  

This is my favorite method for transferring patterns.

Why transfer patterns, you ask?  Why not just cut them out like you're supposed to, you wonder?

Well, there's nothing wrong with doing it the way you're supposed to.  But if you do, you're limiting your options. If you cut out a pattern on a certain size, then the pattern will only be good for making that size forever.  Also, once you separate the pieces, it's a lot easier to lose them. 

 By using this technique, you'll get a lot more use out of your patterns. You'll be able to use ALL of the sizes and it'll be much harder to lose any of those little pieces.

In the video, it takes me about 12 minutes to trace one piece, but I'm stopping to explain the steps.  In actuality, I can usually trace all my needed pieces a lot faster... A piece usually takes about 5 minutes or less.  


Stay tuned for more videos and tutorials!!  And comment to let me know what kind of videos you want to see!!!

See you soon!!!


PS.  I know I missed Friday's Favorite post but I ran into a bit of a problem.  I was searching for cosplay photos and I'm having trouble finding decent pictures that show of the costumes. 

Most pictures are either too far away, too close up or too artistic/photoshopped. 

If anyone knows of any decent resources, let me know.  I will keep searching and hopefully have something for this weeks post. 


  1. This is a great tip!! Thanks so much! I like to check out sewing books from the library and they often come with patterns in the back of the book. This would be a great way to copy the pattern :D how do you store your plastic patterns? Are the creases a problem?
