Resizing Your Pattern

So I just wanted to touch base with you on how to resize your paper pattern.

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.

Here is my pattern. 

This is the tool I use to find out how much to enlarge my pattern. 

Short side of my pattern is 13"  The long side is 16"
