What is remodeling?

To remodel is to shape clothes again or differently. I usually use this to describe when I sew clothes to fit differently or to have a different look, but the majority of the item remains the same.

What is upcycling?

Upcycling involves reusing a material to create something better than the original. I generally use this to describe when I'm sewing adult clothing into children's clothing or when I'm sewing clothing into an accessory or home item.

What is a PDF sewing pattern?

A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on a computer and organized so that it can be printed on several sheets of letter or A4 size paper.

I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets damaged or my kids or I have changed sizes, I can always print it again. It will never be destroyed since I have a digital version!

How to use a PDF sewing pattern?

Open the PDF on a computer and click Print. When printing, make sure the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the design prints at the correct size.

Once the design is printed, it can be glued together to achieve its actual size. Then the pattern can be cut out for each size piece of the pattern or individual sizes can be traced so that the pattern can be used again and again. Learn how to use PDF sewing patterns.
