So you love sewing but not so much the pattern tracing work? This sewing tips tutorial is for you: an EASY and super FAST SOLUTION to get the (right size!) pattern from the template. Takes only a minute!
Whenever I wanted to sew something bigger than a hat or a ball, there's that additional cumbersome work that needs to be done BEFORE any cutting and actual sewing can happen: tracing the large pattern from the template onto the fabric. Oh, I hated that! I wanted to sew, not to trace and draw and then observe how much I missed the desired pattern line...
Until I found out about this easy solution to do it:
Baking parchment paper. It is semi-transparent, and that is what makes it easy to use. Super easy.
- your multi-sized pattern
- a piece of baking parchment paper
- a permanent marker
- Simply place the pattern on a flat surface
- cover the entire area you want to trace with a piece of baking paper
- trace the (right size!) line of the original pattern.
- Cut it out and - voilà!
