Where is the pattern?
Because you are printing the pattern from home, in most cases you will have to assemble parts of the pattern.
For Newer patterns:
Follow the map and assemble in order 1, 2,3, etc. The grey lines overlap and should line up. Tap together. Then cut out patterns before using nice sewing scissors. See video for more instruction
For older patterns:
On the second page there is a picture of what the completed, assembled pattern will look like (it’s at the top of the page so you’ll know it’s not the pattern).
The pages following that picture are the pieces to the pattern.
All of the pages overlap .5 inches.
At the top and bottom you will notice small lines ( _ I )these are guides to help you line up the pages.
Tape the pages together.
Because the paper you’ll be printing on is much thicker than the tissue paper of most patterns, I recommend pre- cutting the pattern with your paper scissors so you don’t dull your sewing scissors.
Now you’re ready to use the pattern! The great part is that you can just store these patterns and use them multiple times because they are so sturdy.
