… is how to layout a pattern on fabric.

It sounds like such a little thing but when you lay it all out properly not only do you spend less money on fabric but, you have large enough scraps for future mini projects!

Looking at the image now I should have moved my pocket and beltloops further up or down but that’s what happens when you’re pinning patterns at 11pm.

The two things I can’t properly sew/create without: my magnetic pin holder and my gold handled Gingher 8″ shears. Misplaced my old pair during one of the moves last year and finally replaced them yesterday — about time! (Side note: They’re $36.99 at Joann Fabrics but you can use a coupon so they ended up being $21 and change after my web coupon for 50% off!)

The fabric is all cut out and laid out so tonight the sewing commences! Can’t wait to share the final 🙂
