Pattern Formats & Packaging Information

Paper Panache is working towards having a great variety of patterns for every occasion.
At present most patterns are printed patterns that are sent via the U.S. mail, but I am currently
working on more PDFs.


You will run across Paper Panache patterns in several formats:

Paper Panache Pattern coverPRINTED and sent to you by U.S. Mail
FULL PATTERNS include a master copy, foundation set, and photo cover, unless specified otherwise.
• PATTERN SHEETS are patterns printed on one sheet which can be used as a master or as a foundation. Patterns may be photocopied by the purchaser for their personal use. Buy two if you want to use one and keep one.
• "MASTER COPY ONLY" PATTERNS contains one master pattern copy, which the purchaser may photocopy to make their own foundations. Some patterns have separate, optional foundation sets available.

Printed Patterns Available   |    Formats & Packaging Information (below)


PDF (ELECTRONIC), available online, sent by email, or presented as links
 PDF stands for "Portable Document File," a file that can be opened and viewed by any computer using the Adobe Reader, a FREE tool for opening and reading PDF files. You keep the PDF on your machine and print it out yourself with your own printer onto any foundation you desire. These patterns are clearly marked "PDF" above the Add to Cart buttons in the shopping cart.

Other Definitions / Info

A. Reduced Master:
To save paper and/or space, the master copy has been reduced and is somewhat smaller than the foundation copy included in the pattern. The master pattern is clearly marked and includes enlargement information.

B. Fold-and-Sew Foundations:

A pattern designated as Fold-and-Sew features fast, accurate, and very easy fold-and-sew foundations, resulting in fewer seams to pin and sew. Illustrated instructions show you how.

C. Oak & Maple Nine-Block Top:
Same as #1, but contains one extra set of plain paper foundations to keep as master copies.

D. Garden Fairy:

Contains a master copy and a foundation copy. All Instructions, palette, but no fabric amounts.

E. Evening Star:

Contains master copy of pattern on heavier paper, meant to be photocopied to create foundations, and pattern-specific instructions and palette. Lacks fabric amounts and photo cover. Color drawing of finished blocks.
