Copy machines and scanners are common household accompaniments to your home computers. Do you use them for sewing? I do!
I recently purchased a fantastic pattern from Deb's Recycled Sewing Patterns. The pattern arrived in perfect condition and had been protected from any weather that might possibly happen in transit with excellent packaging.
The pattern is unlike any I had seen for sewing a chicken* and I wanted to make sure I would have all the pieces to make more than one. Small pattern pieces always seem to get lost as I am working on things and this pattern was loaded with small pieces. I have a great all-in-one printer with copy capabilities and decided to just copy the pattern pieces I needed rather than cut them out so the original pattern remained in tact. There's nothing like knowing your own short comings because sure enough, I returned to the copy machine to re-print the small beak and waddle pieces.
Since I've made all my chickens (for now) The original pattern folds up easily and fits back into it's original pattern envelope without any problem.
**Note: This chicken pattern is no longer available and the phone number on the pattern for All Cooped Up is disconnected. Watch discontinued pattern sites for the pattern to become available.
