  • 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.

              Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
              This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

              I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
              Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
