Printing the HST Patterns
IMPORTANT:
Because accurate sizing on every printer cannot be guaranteed, be sure to measure the one inch reference square at the top of the page to ensure the accuracy of your pattern.

To print at the original pattern size, Acrobat's automatic scaling needs to be turned OFF. To accomplish this in Acrobat:

•Click on File Print . . .
•. . . then under Page Scaling select None
Click on the finished size you require to download the PDF pattern file. You require Adobe Acrobat Reader to print these patterns.

**Acrobat is available free from the Adobe website.




Sewing Tips:
When stitching through a paper pattern, I tighten my top tension. This way, the seam does not pull open once the paper is removed. Also, experiment with various sewing machine feet to see which one makes it easiest to sew along a printed line. My Bernina Denim foot does the best job of this - my Bernina 1/4 inch foot is good too.

Paper to use:
I like to print these patterns on the lightest paper that my printer will handle. I cut newsprint to 8 1/2 by 11 for my printer. My favourite, though, found at a Dollar store, is "Manila Drawing Paper" -- 40 sheets for $1.00. This lightweight construction-type paper is crisp to use and tears off very easily with no tweezers required. Any small pieces that remain will fall apart if slightly dampened.
