A useful tip

IMG_6796

All quiet on the western front I’m afraid chaps – I have been slowly but surely working on my muslin for the V1467 peacoat sewalong and hopefully I’ll be ready to fit the first muslin on Sunday!

In the meantime, I wanted to share a useful tip that I have been using for years, and its about that sewing box staple, carbon papIMG_6817er! (Don’t all cheer at once…)

It’s the simplest thing in the world – to make your carbon paper last longer, stick it to a piece of card!… A little anti-climatic, but honestly it’s such a good tip – your paper lasts longer, it’s really simple to do and it’s easy to store as it’s flat! I use thin card and what ever tape is lying around. Once the paper has been used beyond recognition, just carefully cut away the old and replace with the new!
