What do you do with all those pdf patterns that you print off like Noodles and Milk Patterns and those hand drawn patterns? Well in trying to figure a way to store mine a came up with this..
A Pattern Envelope
Crazy I hadn't thought of this sooner as this is how you buy patterns from the store. Want to make one?
You will need:
- Scrapbook Paper & Cardstock
- Glue (I used a UHU gluestick)
- Pictures of your finished pattern if desired
Cut out your template.
Trace the font piece on your cute scrapbook paper and the back on a plain color card stock, or whatever you would like. This is just what I did.
Cut out your papers fold your pieces on your top piece apply glue to all three folded pieces, just not the top flat. Place the card stock piece on top of the folded and glued pieces from the top.
Embellish the front as you would like a picture of the garment you have sewn or a picture of the original pattern so you can see what it is. Once your glue is dry add your pattern inside your envelope.
Make several I am making the girl ones in "girly" scrapbook paper and the boy pattern in boy printed scrapbook paper. Now you have a cute way to store your patterns.
