PROBLEMS PRINTING ?

 

Printing out pattern sheets:   

  • You will obviously need to print out your pattern sheets.     All sheets print to standard A4 sized printer paper (no joining or cellotape needed  : )       Most sheets need Portrait orientation, a few are better in landscape.   See the printing instructions on the sheet.     See image below  : )
  • If you have problems with the size of the printed pattern sheets, a size guide is included so that you can check that printed pieces are the correct size.    
  • If the size is not correct, check that your printer is printing out to "full page"   or has  "resized to page" and that you have chosen A4 as the size.

Printing out instructions :

You may find printing out the instructions easier to use if, like me, you like to work away from your screen now and then  !       You can print the complete pdf out if you wish.     The first page may need to be printed on "landscape" rotation.  If you are having a problem with this, check your printer will allow you to choose "auto - rotation" when you print. This will solve the problem.   

orientation - auto    

Alternatively, if your printer does not have an option to auto-rotate, you can choose certain pages to print .  In this case,  use this option and print out the first page separately  in Landscape,  the remainder can all be printed in Portrait.

RESIZING YOUR PATTERN PIECES:

 

My patterns do not need any re-sizing - deliberately designed to fit A4 sheets to avoid puzzling pieces together.   However you may wish to re-size - and you are free to do so  : )     Digital patterns make should make this easier.   Basically re-sizing your pattern sheet by 200% will make the character twice the size.  The pieces will not fit onto one sheet now, of course.  I recommend copy/pasting the whole sheet twice into your graphics prog.   Then select one copy and delete all pieces so that you can use this as your new sheet  (rename it).   Copy one piece at a time and paste them as a new image.   Re-size the image, then past this onto clear sheet.  This will help you to get the correct sizing.   See my crib sheet below  : )

 

1.   First, copy the original pattern sheet - select all in the new sheet and delete so we have a nice clean sheet.

2.   Select a pattern piece - copy and paste this into a new temporary image of its own

I've chosen a leg  .....

3.   Resize this piece as needed (I'm resizing by 200% to double the size)

4.   Paste your newly sized pattern piece onto the new sheet and print

keep the print settings to A4 Portrait and print to full page as you would

normally.   As you can see we now have a larger leg to work on !

5.     Repeat with each piece.  Either save each one to retain for future use, or delete from your new working sheet and replace witht he next piece (after printing, of course  : )

You may be able to fit more than one on the sheet  (ie  ears, and footpads etc )

 

Hope that helps  - good luck  x
