Squeezing it all on!17:59
Have you ever looked at the fabric requirements on a pattern, then at your too small piece of fabric and thought, those numbers don't mean anything!
If so, you'll recognise today's post when you come to cut out!
I like to start with my largest pattern pieces, or the ones I really want out of that particular fabric and draw round them on the reverse with my frixion pen. Then I draw round the rest of the pieces, fitting them in where I can. At least that way I know what pieces I can fit from my fabric, and what I need to re-work....BEFORE I start cutting!
It's more time consuming, but when these are all the scraps I had after making up my two zip hipster, I was glad I had taken the time to do this.
Any other tips for those of us who are cheapskates with our expensive (or any really!) fabric?
