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.
Why sew handmade gifts?
- They are unique and personalized. You can choose fabrics and colors that the recipient likes, which shows you thought about it. This could fill a need in a way that a store-bought item cannot. You can also add a name to personalize it even more.
- They can be more affordable than store-bought gifts. Depending on what you have in your sewing room, you can make handmade gifts more cheaply than store-bought gifts. Honestly, it can go either way in terms of cost, so you need to be intentional with how you spend your money to get the most bang for your buck.
- It's a great way to show your love and appreciation. Every time I give a gift, I think of the love that goes into the item I make. You can show a lot of love with a handmade gift because it shows the time you thought and effort you put into creating it for the recipient.
