This is my original pattern design for the Lorax. My design tip that will save you time, money and paper. How I work is by using free cardboard from your groceries, (I also have friends who save me theirs). It is easy to cut and is recyclable. When I am happy with my shapes I then place them onto A4 paper and trace. If the pieces over lap use a different coloured pen. Scan it.
This is now saved onto your computer and it can be easily be made to the size you want it to be. You add the seam allowances after. My favourite tool to use for enlarging is called PosteRazor. this is the link.
This is just a teaser of the things I am making for the chair as I want to keep it a surprise for the school and will then post the finished item then.
