If you don't want to wait for a hard copy and you have access to a Printer
then buy our Downloadable version of the Pattern

A PDF file of the Instructions and Patterns which you print out on your own printer. You will require a printer, paper, celotape (Sticky tape)and scissors to cut out the pattern shapes. The Patterns are full size so it is very important that you choose the correct Paper size (you select the size during the purchase process). By chosing the correct paper size this will prevent distortion of the Patterns. We offer the 2 most common paper sizes used in home printers. As a result of fitting our Patterns on these paper sizes some of the patterns will span several sheets of paper which you will have to tape together. This is clearly marked on the Pattern.
