    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: )

    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
