Seam Allowance Cheat Sheet Printable

*This post contains affiliate links. I’ve been meaning to make this for a while because i whine about forgetting the seam allowances for my favourite patterns all the time. This printable is awesome because it takes that away. No longer will you have to open up the PDF pattern every time you start a project that you’ve already made 10 times and know off by heart! Pattern designers usually stick with the same seam allowances for all of their patterns. Which makes it even easier to use as you can just put all in the pattern column. The notes column […]

My pictures were used without attributing them to me. This worried me. It’s was becoming a bad risk. I asked […]
