that do NOT include the 1/4-inch seam.
It seems to me that when I purchase a book of patterns, all of that extra work should be done for me. I have been spending well over an hour on each pattern just cutting out the different sections and adding seam allowances.
Last night I had to do it again with a snowman pattern.
I cut out each individual piece, tape it to copy paper and add the 1/4".
Now I am finally able to run copies today so I can begin sewing tonight.
I must remember to check the patterns BEFORE I buy a book. If the author was too lazy to add the seam allowances, I will pass on that purchase.
Isn't this the cutest snowman block? It's the one I plan to make tonight.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
