    thank you for your comment. It’s kind of transparent pad. I bought it at Ikea but I don’t know what’s call. It’s about 60cm X 50cm X 2mm. When I copy big pattern I use old bed spread instead( fold many times :>)

    thanks for the how-to. I LOVE pattern alteration! It’s one of my favorite things about sewing. I was wondering…was type of board are you using under your pattern? Can you PIN into it? If so, please give me some help…as I need something like this! Thanks for you time and help… ~j.b.

    I do not make this kind of sleeve like this but I shall certainly try it next time. As a matter of fact I am anxious to try this. Also, I think that your explanations are great as are the photos. Thanks a lot for the how-to.
