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!
