Tuesday's Tutorial Treat - How to visualise fabric on patterns

In my last post, on my Autumn sewing plans, I debuted my new skill - showing patterns with my chosen fabric! I'm not very technologically minded (I used to be...but now I am old (!!) and can't keep up with the advances...!) but I followed a very clear and helpful tutorial done by Melissa from The Curious Kiwi. The bonus is she did a tutorial for Gimp, which is a free downloadable programme! Since I don't have Photoshop this is the version I used.

P.S. Katy Cameron asked me how I had done my pics, so Katy I hope this helps - I expect to see fabulous fabric & pattern combinations from you now!


  1. Oh yay, thank you! Seems so obvious when you think about it - mental head slap to me!

  2. Ohh! Your skirts look fabulous! I'm so glad you found my tutorial so easy, well done and your results are amazing. I can't wait to see the finished items xx

  3. This is such a good idea, why didn't I think of it before! Off to download gimp...


Thank you so much for your comments - they really do make my day!
