Did You Know?

Wild Ginger Software has a free downloadable pattern drafter. It's called Wild Things and will draft patterns for bags, hats, belts, wraps, and slippers. Of course it's very simple software - it's free after all - but there's a wider range of bag patterns than I expected to see. They also offer a free non-printing clothing pattern drafting demo. While it doesn't print, it might be good for inspiration...

Did You Know?

Did you know you can download a free pdf creation program called CutePDF Writer? With this you can print any document and select CutePDF from your list of printers, automatically creating a pdf.

You'll see this on their download page

Installation Requirements

  • Supports Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista (x32/x64).
  • Requires PS2PDF converter such as Ghostscript (recommended).
    You can get the free GPL Ghostscript 8.15 here.
I totally ignored the PS2PDF converter notation and had no problems (I use XP).

The pdf program comes in handy when someone does tutorials on their blog. Just highlight the entire tutorial, copy, and paste into a Word doc. no need to save the Word doc, just print using the CutePDF selection and save. Cool, huh?
