Making pattern printing a LOT easier

A few weeks ago I added a new printer to the household. This one is kind of special... For one thing, it barely fit in the van when I picked it up!
When I print out my patterns from PatternMaster Boutique, I usually have to spend time and effort taping the pieces of paper together. For smaller pattern pieces, that's not too bad, but when you're doing pants or other large pattern pieces, it can get a little unwieldy. Now, I won't have to deal with it anymore!

Here's the HP650C, busy printing out a pants pattern this evening. It prints in full color, on paper up to 36" wide. Bliss!! This is an older printer, and needed to have the status screen replaced, but once that was done, it worked like a charm.

It's a little hard to see here, but this is the printout of the pants pattern. Now I don't have to worry about taping the pieces together inaccurately. This is going to revolutionize my sewing.


  1. Oooh, this could get me into a LOT of trouble and take me to a completely different place in my sewing room. Why, there is a printer like this down the road from me in a second hand shop. I have been in to inquire if it functioned. Yes, it does. I left it but it has never left my mind because this purchase would lead to another....a pattern drafting programme. Yes, that would mean a whole different place. Glad to know it works and does so well. Now where to get that paper roll.

  2. What a wonderful find! I am totally jealous...but happy for you!

    Still gluing and taping,

  3. wow! that's incredible and I'm jealous too!


I would love to hear your thoughts... Please share!
