EEKKKKK, how do I know which one to print? It's new to me.
Bumping this because your question never got answered, sewnsewer2. I do not use graph paper to enlarge patterns, so I cannot give you an accurate reply. Perhaps one of the ladies who do enlarge them this way can help you with your question. (I use math. :shock: )
Ok...I hear ya sewnsewer2!!
Here is a pdf file which you can download and save to your computer and just print off what you need. This is 1/4" squares. Hopes this helps you!!
If you need any more help just PM me :D
As the paper is smaller. What I do is:-
Draw the design by 6" (No seam allowances)
Then Draw each section of the design DOUBLE the amount of squares contained in the 6"
i.e. if it was a four square patch in the 6" design each of the squares would be 3" x 3" - So make your template 6" x 6" for each square x 4 = 12" x 12" :D
For triangles - Count how many inches or part there of on each side and draw the diagonal as usual.
So if the triangle 4 x 4" on short sides - Draw 8" x 8" then draw diagonal.......hope this sounds easy - it really is honest :D
You must add your seam allowances to either the fabric or the template - your choice :D
So if you are still struggling, just PM me and we can go through it until you are sure you understand :D
Thank you everyone. I think I'm going to get EQ5 also. :lol:
