Today's sewing

Angie, a fellow blogger and pattern reviewer on Pattern Review, made me aware of a great paint program that one can take line drawings of patterns and overlay a photo of your fabric onto the line drawing. I have seen others doing this but for the life of me could not get it to work with some of my photo type programs on my computer. She gave me some very helpful instructions and I have come up with two patterns I want to sew. They are both knit tops and should sew up quickly.

Here is the Simplicity 4076 pattern, line drawings.

I am making C. Here it is with fabric overlay.

This is a knit that has been aging in my collection for about a year, maybe two. I have adjusted the pattern for and have cut out the fabric. I hope to sew some on it this evening and of course tomorrow.


  1. That is so cool. I just have the basic Paint program that came with my computer. I have to ask my husband if he knows of a program that can do this. What is the name of the program you are using for this technique?

  2. It is called Paint.Net and it is a free program. Send me your email address and I will send you the information I have.

  3. I sent you a message via Pattern Review.

  4. It's going to be a great shirt! I like the gathers and the flared sleeves - not your ordinary t-shirt!
