I love my new cutting board! It’s also perfect for tracing patterns. I started reading the pattern fitting book and have to say, it’s really good. I totally recommend it. In the next weeks I’ll write a few reviews of the sewing and pattern making books I use!

Note that you won’t need to add seam allowance any more. You will need two pieces for the outer and the inner fabric and one piece of fusible interfacing.
