Assembling your Pattern

  1. Lay your patten out on a flat surface in the order shown in the diagram within your Instructions PDF.
  2. Make rows first - Trim along solid border lines down the left side of each page (except the 1st page in each row) to remove blank margins. Form each row by matching 1A with 1A, & 2A with 2A etc. Glue pages together to make the row.
  3. Join rows together - Trim along the top solid border lines of each row (except the 1st row) to remove the blank margin strips. Match number/letter combinations then glue or tape rows together. Repeat this step adding each row to the bottom of the previous one. The pattern should look seamless & in alignment. (If using tape, try to do most of your taping within each pattern piece outline).
  4. Cut around each paper pattern piece with paper scissors in the size you require.
