My Notches Technique

I just saw a blog post about notches.

There are many ways to mark and cut notches - except that I do not cut notches

I cut the notch in on the pattern.

I cut straight across the fabric, straight across the notch.

I mark the fabric with permanent marker right in the middle of the pattern's indented notch.

Here are some examples of notches I've used.  I try to mark the fabric with a pen color that will contrast with the fabric.

Have you tried this method with pattern notches?

Do you have a special trick for notches?

  1. So easy!!! Thanks for sharing. I was taught (back in the 80's) to always cut the notch outwards from the edge of the fabric, in effect adding on a diamond shape to the edge of the fabric piece - can you imagine how fiddly this was? Glad times have changed...
