02 Nov 2015


 Have you ever finished sewing with a pattern only to find you can't fit the pieces back into the pattern envelope? Believe it or not, the solution is very simple!  Don't try to stuff it back into the envelope. You will most likely tear either the pattern pieces, the envelope, or both.
