    jenss-1 commented on the technique Make Shoulder Pads

    Mary, I think yours is fancier than mine! My set is just from the stationery store. Sometimes I get a bit carried away with the pencil choices and have to put a color key on my pattern so that I …

    A full set of colored pencils – for tracing, but also for marking my changes to the pattern, distinctively.

    I have seen some things online that look like a spool spindle extension. It seems like the two spools are basically stacked? There are also some attachments made to go into the various holes that…
