Quick Memory Trick for Sewing

Have memory issues and hate retracing your steps when sewing to figure out where you left off?


Post it flags to the rescue.

I may have days where I can only sew for 15 minutes before having to walk away to do something else and when I come back, I have a hard time figuring out where I left off.  Now I draw a quick arrow on a small post it flag and mark the step that I was in the middle of.  If I’ve finished one step and will be moving on to the next step, I put the flag pointing in between the step numbers.  If I’m doing something unusual, adding trim that isn’t covered in the pattern, etc., I’ll use a larger post-it note and make myself reminders on it of what I’m doing or planning to change in the pattern.

Hope this is helpful for others!
