  • Altering Patterns

    How do you all find to be the best way to alter patterns? I have done a few changes in the past but I have to change the pattern in SSW with the boxers. The boxers owned by the ones I makeing the slab for does not have the pointy ears but lie down beside thier head. A bit of a change but makes a big difference in the appearence. Any ideas??

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

    I would photocopy then use whiteout on the parts you want changing.
    do the touch up and photocopy again.

    You could also scan the image and modify it electronically.

    I like to scan patterns when I can so I can print them off when I need them.

      I scan it and then edit it using Paint Shop Pro or equivalent software. It allows you to do whatever you want.
      Then just print it out.

        Chuck,
        If you are computer- or money- challenged, you can photocopy the pattern, and use tracing paper or vellum over it - trace the parts you want to keep - then, using another piece of tracing paper - fool around with your alterations 'til you're happy - then trace the whole shebang together, and you've got it. If this isn't clear, I could try again, maybe.

              Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

              Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
