  • A source for photos for pattern designing

    I just had a request for a portrait of a smooth fox terrier. This is a fairly rare breed so of course, none of the free pattern sites had one. My request for one didn't turn up anything either. I decided to see if I could find a decent photo online and make the pattern myself. If any of you have attempted this, you already know that most web photos are at such a low resolution that it's almost impossible to utilize them. However, the Wikipedia encyclopdia has photos of probably anything needed and when enlarged, they actually have a high enough resolution to be able to work with them. Just do a google search for wikipedia encyclopdia and then search for the subject.

    Just thought I would send this info along, if any body is interested.

      I've tried label paper as well. It peels off reasonably well, although different brands will probably perform differently. When it doesn't come off easily, I have a little heat gun that makes release quickly. When I have used 3M spray adhesive and left it on for too long, a hair dryer or heat gun...
