Sewing Tips: Yardage Card

So I've had a boring piece of paper holding the vital info of  'how many inches are in 5/8 of a yard?' in the front of my sewing binder for far too long. This weekend I decided to make it not-so-boring. I ended up making it business card size because well...smaller is cuter right? I could even put it in a tiny frame and put it on my sewing table. Hmmmm....just might do that.

When I was done, I figured I wasn't the only one who easily forgot how many inches are in 5/8 of a yard. So here it is for you all. I even made it in different colors. Are you shocked that it involves polka dots?

To print: Right click on the color you like. Click 'Save Image As'. Then click on the image in its saved location and print. (Now my printer defaulted to make the card take up the entire page. I just clicked off 'Scale to Fit' and clicked on 'Scale' and set it to 100%. Now each printer will be different...so can't help you much on that.)

Enjoy!

  7. This is fantastic! I'm new to sewing and inches and yards. In Australia we use centimetres and metres. With so many patterns using yards, I am constantly trying to convert! This makes life easier! Now all you have to do is put centimetres on and it'll be perfect! ;p

  15. Hi LeAnne,

    I hope you don't mind but I put the yardage card on the sidebar of my blog - just for fun! But when people click on it, it links back to you. Hopefully you won't mind and maybe it will send people your way. Thanks for sharing it with us. It's so cute!
