Many sewing patterns are printed on a thin tissue paper. This is fine for a project that you’ll make once or twice, but for patterns you plan on using over and over, it’s a good idea to go ahead and transfer your patterns to a sturdier paper. Vanessa from Crafty Gemini shares a video tutorial on her blog showing how you can do that using inexpensive notions and materials that you probably already have at your house. Get the video tutorial.
