Hey everyone -

I purchased a purse sewing pattern and I intend to make several of the same, but I am worried the tissue paper pattern won't hold up.

How can I protect the pattern to re-use it over and over?  Or do I need to purchased several copies of the pattern?

Thanks,
Morgan

I reuse patterns over and over.  I just fold them back up and put them in a freezer bag with the instructions.  Then I just iron them out flat again.

 I find the place that has a tendency to tear is where I have pinned the pattern to the fabric so I put a little clear tape on there.  

Patterns can last a long time, my aunt gave me some tissue patterns that she used to make me special dresses and I used those patterns for my daughter.

someone said to trace it onto freezer paper - but even easier, you can iron the freezer paper onto the back. there are directions on the paper's box.

I know this is a little off topic but...

did anyone see that one trading spaces where they wallpapered a little dressing area with vintage patterns?  It ended up looking like tea soaked tissue with cut markings on it.  I loved it...unfortunately the owner hated it...the way I see it don't sign up for the show unless you're ready for wacky results!
