I know I should be able to do math in my head; I also know I should eat more fruits and vegetables and actually use my gym membership. I could continue to pretend all these things are going to happen, or… I could find some little workarounds. Our Cheat Card is a handy reference table that converts common yardage amounts into inches and centimeters – no math-in-your-head required. It’s small enough to tuck into your wallet or tack up on the bulletin board in your sewing room.
Our Yardage Conversion Cheat Card is the size of a standard business card: 2” x 3½”. All six designs print out on one 8½” x 11” sheet of paper from which you can cut out the cards (there are handy crop marks to help guide your trimming). You may want to print on a heavier card stock (80lb cover is a good option) or print on regular paper then glue that lighter weight sheet to a stiff backing material.
Keep one card in your bag, one at home by your cutting table, share them with friends. Of course, we know you could totally do it all in your head, but you need that brain space to remember to buy more spinach and find your workout gear.
This is the first installment in our Cheat Card series. You may also want to print out the Measuring Tape Cheat Card, Sewing Machine Needles Cheat Card, Basic Shapes #1 Cheat Card: The Circle, Basic Shapes #2 Cheat Card: Common Straight Line Shapes, and Basic Shapes #3 Cheat Card: Common Angles. These five sets of cards are set-up on the same variety of backgrounds. Pick your favorite design and build a set, or cut them all out to share.
