Creating a Custom Storyboard

I'm strongly considering sewing myself a mini wardrobe in September & participating in Pattern Review's Mini Wardrobe Contest. In preperation , I created a storyboard using my possible fabrics & patterns. A couple ladies wanted to know how it was done, so I made this tutorial. Keep in mind I'm using PSE8 and can't really speak to other versions.  :) You'll need a image of the pattern line drawing and a digital swatch of your fabric (just copy & paste from your browser).  

Edit to add: There's a number of typos & I apologize :) PSE doesn't spell check & this tutorial was a long process. I hope you find it useful anyway. :) 

This is incredibly long & you'll need to click on the pictures to make them bigger. (You can also view via this flikr album. Here we go!

TIP: If you ever find yourself having trouble, double check that the layer you want to be selected is selected. :) 


  1. Good tutorial Jenna! I use PaintShopPro XI and have been unable to do this. Maybe I can start with this and modify for my program. It is generous of you to teach others this skill :-)

  2. Thanks Jenna, I've always wondered how the clever people to this. Hopefully I can become one of the clever people too!
