There is a handy dandy scale thing called the Quilters Assistant Proportional Scale.
So I take the pattern and measure it and this pattern is 13" X 16" I want the longest side to be 26".
So I am going to line the 16 mark ( on the inside) to the 26 mark ( on the outside)
Then look at the Enlargement window. So it shows I will take it to Fed Ex or wherever you have enlargements made and tell them I want it enlarged 165% Some of the people don't understand and so just tell them you want the long side 26". I tell them to make a copy of a mirror image as well. This is what I will use for the pattern. It has to be reversed because of the way I use Steam a Seam 2 lite. So there you have it. Email me if you have any questions. I'm off to Fed Ex.
