The instruction manual
Printing your sewing pattern PDF
There is a 10cm square on one of the first pages of the pattern PDF that looks like this:
Your are only going to print this page first. It is critical that when this page is printed the 10cm square measures exactly 10cm.
How to assemble your printed sewing pattern
This requires some patience, glue (or tape but we prefer glue as tape may melt when ironed) and a sharp pair of paper scissors:
The first page is your pattern layout guide, showing you how to fit your pieces together. The pages that are crossed out on this guide aren't printed. Use this guide when laying out your pages.
Your printed pattern is now ready to use! Enjoy and don't forget to send us some pictures! We love to see what you have made - firstname.lastname@example.org
Watch us assemble a pattern here.
The pattern pieces fit together along the sides but not along the bottom (or vice versa)
This is down to how the paper is being fed into your printer. Check whether your printer has guides that hold the paper in place as these will help to feed the paper through accurately. Still having a problem? You may need to use a different printer to get better accuracy.
