{How To:} Printing and Tiling your Patterns

Could of done with this a few months back.

My personal tip for home pattern printing is pay attention to the test square if one exists. Sometimes pattern makers who supply downloadable patterns include a test square like -a 10cm box which says 10cm box for example.

Its a really smart addition to  a downloadable pattern (not all patterns have them). You just whip out your ruler and double check the scale .  For a doubting Thomas like me ,I find this quite reassuring.  It would be such a pity and waste to start cutting a pattern out only to find the scale is incorrect. As my Dad likes to say, Measure twice cut once.

Pattern Runaway who supply the guide are a lovely little business and design some beautiful patterns.

I really want to make this next summer …..Scalloped hem shorts
