DOWNLOADING PDF PATTERNS

Using the links in the email download the file/s onto your computer and ensure you save all the files. Don't click these download links on your phone or tablet - there may not be enough room on these devices to save the files.
You only get 2 attempts to download your files to prevent illegal sharing.

DO MIY COLLECTION PATTERNS CONTAIN SEAM ALLOWANCES?
Absolutely! All patterns that I design, including those in all my books, have seam allowances included.
COPY SHOP SIZE PDF PATTERNS
All of my PDF digital patterns include a full size un-tiled version of the pattern sized to fit on paper which is at least A0 size in width (84.1cm / 33ins). You will be able to send this file to a professional print/copy shop for printing and most will charge you for the length of paper used by the metre or part metre.
Also included with each PDF pattern is a tiled version of the pattern sized to fit A4 and US letter size sheets of paper ready to be printed and stuck together at home, an instruction booklet for the project and printing instructions for printing and putting together the tiled version of the pattern.
