PATTERNBOX now also helps you keep track of your fabric, notions and projects you are
working on. You can easily add fabric by taking a photo of the fabric, then add the description,
how much, what the fabric is used for and more. Notions are also easily added. So you know
everything you have in your sewing stash.
PATTERNBOX helps you keep track of projects. You can select the pattern, fabric and notions
needed for the project plus information on who this project is for.
Ratings and Reviews
Within 5 minutes of using this app, it was already getting on my nerves because it takes way too long to "save" a pattern. I'm not a fan of the layout either, so I'll be looking for something else.
Much better than the other apps I've tried.
I love how well this app updates between my phone & ipad. It is much easier to input data on the pad, but easier to take the phone to the fabric store.
It really doesn't take that long to photograph both sides of a pattern envelope, decide on categories, type in description & pattern number & save. I wish the screen was willing to flip so I could use my ipad keyboard to do the typing, though. I also wish the app sorted the patterns by pattern number.
I collect out of print kwik sew patterns. I have a bad habit of buying duplicates. Being able to call up a list of pattern numbers so I could check and see if I've already got my latest find would be awesome. I can find what I need, but a master list would be great.
I also noticed once you accidentally add a category you don't need there's no way to delete it (oops, my bad).
More than anything I just needed a way to take the backs of my pattern envelopes with me to the fabric store & be able to check pattern numbers w out getting out the boxes. This program does even more than I needed. Couldn't be more pleased. I will update my review as updates are made. I hear support is awesome.
I LOVE this app.
I like this app better than any other I’ve tried. Including Sewingkit HD which I absolutely loved but is unfortunately no longer supported. I’ve been looking for over a year for something to replace it with. I think this is going to be the one. I haven’t finished uploading everything yet, but is very easy to use. My complaints are minor. The pictures seem to take a long time to load when you’re looking at them in my patterns. Automatic capitalization and the ability to build a database of pattern companies to choose from would be nice. Also a section where I could store the measurements of people I sew for regularly (including myself) would make it absolutely perfect.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
