Over the years, I have done many projects that involved a stencil or applique pattern or cutout of some type. I keep them all. I can’t tell you how many times I have been able to go back to my folder and pull out something I already have that will work on my current project!  Sometimes they need only to be resized! This is where a printer with a copy/scan feature comes in handy!   This is a real time saver. Not as much internet surfing looking for a flower or such!

I even keep the Heat n Bond paper liner if I cut out a shape from fabric! I figure I’ve already done the hard work, why not use it again?!?

I keep them all handy in this big file folder. They are all sorted into categories, then into ziplocks for easy viewing!

The “S” is from my most recent project!



I am a work at home mom. I have three great kids, Macie 18, Trent 15, and the newest addition to our family is Layna, who is a whole 6 months old! I love to stay home and take care or my kids, The Hubs and my home! I sew and craft and create to stay sane! My mind is a constant blur of a million projects!
