My DH has just treated me to the Fa La La felt holiday book but noticed you have to enlarge the patterns to say 200%..am I the only one who does not own a photocopier lol how to you get round this on your home printer/scanner or do you simply wait til you can find a stationers to have the bits enlarged.
I have wanted this book for ages so I can make little pressies for my college classmates but pressies that are not too young, well we are the older students lol

Go to your local library. They will have a copy machine and the charge is usually much less than a copy center.

my home printer/scanner enlarges, but am still limited to the paper size, so it has to be smaller than 8 1/2 x 11 to be able to be enlarged

if it is too large for one sheet, doesn't it print multiple sheets to make the entire pattern for you? then you just tape it together.

On my printer/scanner, it only prints one page and I have to rotate it hopefully in the right order to get all the pieces and tape them together. It's rather a pain so I take it to church with me and enlarge it on the big copier.

I only own a simple copy/printer lol ancient model does what it says on the tin no extras lol but hey is Christmas due soon lol wink wink ;-)
But how annoying is it that certain publishers will print the whole scale pattern and some do not....not as if they huge patterns after all. But will as tipped go to the library.
