Pickerington Or ...
When I cut my first patterns I thought that this is a waste. After it is cut you can never use an other size ( to make something for your friend/family or your size changes )
So I started to transfer the pattern like I will show.
For me this method has only positive attitudes:
1- you can use your pattern as much as you like.
2-you can see through them , makes it easier for some fabrics.
3- its stronger and softer than paper, needles can´t damage it as quick as paper
4. after storrage you don´t have to fight with wrinkles.
- thicker plastic which is wide enough for your patterns ( I bought house wrap plastic sheet for 2,5$-that´s enough till in ten years ;-) )
- needles ( not on the pic) or tape to fix your work
-permanent marker ( dark color )
