FAQs

I’ve never used a PDF pattern. How do they work? PDF patterns are super easy and you get them instantly! Once you’ve tried one, you’ll never go back. You simply download, print, and sew! You’ll need a free Adobe Acrobat reader program and any home printer (or a nearby copy shop for A0 printing). Once you’ve printed the pieces, you then tape or glue the pages together like a super easy jigsaw! You’ll find an easy-to-follow how-to guide inside the PDF, plus support in our Facebook group.

This trim-free pattern comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes and includes full pattern pieces and a detailed tutorial to guide you every step of the way. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.
