How to Get Printable Versions of my Tutorials – plus a Holiday Bonus!
I can’t tell you how many emails I have received from people who want to print my free tutorials and patterns, but get frustrated by printing a blog post because it turns out to be soooo many pages. I used to get several complaining emails a day!
And I totally understand. I get frustrated when I try to print from blogs too.
I may write the tutorials on SewCanShe, but I am not an expert on computer code or how the back end of this blog works. To me, each post is like writing an email. I type words and insert photos, but how the page structure and ads work is way beyond me.
I know that many of you copy and paste words and photos into word documents, and that is fine with me as long as you don’t distribute or share the files in any way (please just tell your friends about SewCanShe.com so they can read my posts themself).
But that is a tedious process! I know because I’ve done it for myself. But finally I decided that I would rather pay an editor to do the busy work for me so I can concentrate on sharing NEW ideas. Everyone loves new!
And that is what I’ve done. The editor and I have managed to convert over 30 of my most popular tutorials into easy to print PDFs. If the original blog tutorial or pattern included templates, then I’ve included them in the file too.
Click here to see all the blog posts and patterns that Anne (my editor) and I have converted into PDFs. In order to help pay for the time it takes her to convert these tutorials I’m charging just a little bit – $2 each. Of course you don’t have to buy downloadable files for my blog patterns and tutorials because everything you need is included in each post. I’m just providing these in case you think an hour of your time cutting, pasting, and re-formatting is worth $2. 🙂
And it turns out that a lot of people do appreciate the files that are optimized for printing. When I realized that lots of readers were buying multiple PDFs, I decided to make a bundle.
This is a past, present, and future bundle – it includes ALL my Optimized for Printing files so far, plus ALL of the ones that we will prepare in the future.
PLUS – I made these adorable printable note cards that are perfect for including with your handmade gifts. Or sending to all your maker friends!
The Handmade Holiday Note Cards are included with my bundle of ALL SewCanShe Optimized PDFs.
So now you have a choice – you can buy one, buy all, or copy and paste the information yourself. Or bring your phone or tablet with you into your sewing space so you don’t need to print at all!
Thank you so much for supporting me by visiting my blog as often as you can. I love being able to make sewing and quilting my ‘job’ and not just my hobby!

Will you be doing this for future tutorials? I think I have all the ones posted already that I want. I had tried to highlight some and ending up printing other info that was on the side that had nothing to do with them. Used a lot of color ink for something I didn’t want. Recently I wanted those little cinnamon stick trees. So I printed a picture of the trees (in color) and the templates (black & white), then had wrote the list of supplies and instructions. That’s what I’ve been doing when I wanted the tutorial in text.
