Scanning in a sewing pattern piece with my ScannCut
I have done a test to see if I can scan in a manufactured pattern piece used for cutting out a hat that I will make for myself hopefully sometime this winter.
Here is a picture of what the hat will look like when finished. This picture is not the best but hopefully will give an idea.
I wanted to post several up several of the pictures in but when I really looked at them I felt I should not due to the name of the manufacturing company logo. Therefore I will only post pictures of what it looked liked after I scanned it in to my scanncut.
This is how my pattern piece looked after it was scanned in. I will tell you this: My scanncut will not scan in the 12×24 mat. With that said I used my scanncut photo mat 12×12 to scan this piece in. You can get that mat separately and it is used to scan in photoes or designs that you have created yourself or what you have printed out from your home printer. With that said I can cut designs with the 12×24 mat. I can make them the full 12×24 size or make them smaller like any of the other 12×12 mat and resize the design.
Here is the picture of the pattern piece the band of the hat.
Once the pattern piece is scanned in you will have to manipulate to have it cut out as one piece.
Here is what it will look like once you have unified the wordage and the little notch areas.
or at best remove all the writing by deleting it out one by one. will take awhile to do so I did not do it as this is just an example as what can be done.
Here it is what it looks like when using the unified process with the scanncut.
then once it is unified you can move it around as one piece.
with all this said and shown. I have not done a test cut of this as of yet. I am going to try it out on a larger piece of card stock for test purposes only. I will more then likely not cut out this hat using my scanncut because the pieces are really to big for my mats. However I can cut out the crown of the hat lining because that is smaller and should work ok.
Here is how it looks once it is ready to cut. I should be able to just cut out around the pattern using fabric. It should just cut out the rectangle and not cut out the wordage.
Well we will see as I will try it out on paper first. this is just an experiment for me. I wanted to just show what can be a possibility with the scan n cut.
You can cut fabric of smaller size patterns like doll cloths and or make your own patterns. I would also think you could make a newborn baby outfit with scanning in that pattern.
Just to give an idea here of what can be done with the Scanncut.
Your HSN friend,
Finally getting back to this post about scanning in a pattern with the snc.
As we know that is what I am showing you all in the pictures above.
Now I did not do a cut of this with my scanncut because it would have literally cut out the writing that is shown on the pattern meaning if I used fabric or paper it would have really cut out all the words and would have ruined the fabric if that is what I was using so I had it draw out the pattern instead.
I just used a piece of scrap card stock.
In the picture I am about to post here you will see the pattern piece in purple and you will also see my own pattern creation that I used with the scanncut to make my china tea cup case. those pattern pieces are made with white printer copy paper. You could also use tissue paper and then it would have the feel of a manufactured tissue pattern.
Here is what I made with the pattern I created.
With that said yes you can create your own patterns and or make the pattern piece right inside your scan n cut and then just cut out the fabric.
As for manufactured patterns!!! I need to go back to the drawing board no bun intended. I am sure there is a trick to this that I have not learned yet but if and when I do I will more then likely share that here.
Your HSN friend,
Great Job! That’s Awesome.
