E-pattern Tips by Amy Felske,VermontHi!
Here is a tip for using e-patterns. I always print out my entire e-pattern and pop it into a ring binder for reference. Then I print the pattern piece pages onto card stock paper. This is the pattern that I cut out. The card stock is nice and heavy and it makes it easy to trace the sewing lines right onto the fabric. Because it is more sturdy than regular printer paper, it lasts through many uses. I get a plastic page protector for the cut out pattern pieces and pop it into the ring binder with the rest of the pattern and this keeps all my pattern info nice and tidy! Hope this helps!
