The Blog of The Bride of Sesshomaru


Welcome to my sewing, historical reenactment, and CosPlay blog! Here on this blog you will find all of my random thoughts about sewing, the SCA, manga, anime, CosPlay, costume making, embroidery, sewing historically accurate Japanese costumes, and my fandom of Lord Sesshomaru whom I CrossPlay as.

Etsy RE: Sewing patterns- PDF or printed copy?

Sewing patterns- PDF or printed copy?

EelKat says:
I personally prefer printed patterns. PDFs are way more trouble than they are worth.

I have trouble with pdf - for some reason every time I try to load a pdf file it freezes my computer and I have to reboot. Half the time my email bounces pdf attachments to the spam box.

Additionally - I do't like that I have to pay $7.95 for a pdf, than $300 for a printer, $25 for black ink, $40 for color ink, and $5 for paper. Than I have to deal scaling the pdf so it prints the right size, paper jams, memory overload errors, and every other weird thing my computer can think of to do to prevent me from printing up my pattern.

With a pre-printed paper pattern the $7.95 is the only cost I have to pay for my pattern and I don't have to spend 5 hours fighting with my computer.

Waiting for Emmett to come.
