Hey sweetie!

It's great to have you here.

Nice to meet.

First of all, I want to say that the assembly of my pattern sheets is a little different from other sellers.

I have been trying for a long time to find the easiest way to print and bind the sheets. Read the instructions on how to put them together for a good experience and sewing patterns.

If you are completely new to PDF pattern printing, I highly recommend you read everything below.

If it's not the first time, the most important thing is that when connecting my patterns, you don't need to cut anything or put the leaves on top of each other, you just need to lay the edges of the sheets next to each other and stick them with tape.

So if you are new then read everything below, there are good tips and tricks to use PDF sewing patterns

 

PRINTING A TEST SQUERE

CHOOSE YOUR PAPER SIZE

So, now you have to found your paper size and open it. 

PRINT FIRST PAGE

PDF patterns usually include a test square so that you can check that you’re printing at the right scale before printing off your entire pattern. On LEKA patterns, this test square appears on the first page of the pattern.

Let’s look at the printer settings we want to use. The most important thing to look for is scaling. Printers often try to “help” by resizing a document to fill the entirety of a page, but this causes distortion and we definitely don’t want that! We want to make sure all of the pieces are printing exactly to size, so that we don’t end up with extra big or extra small pieces.

The easiest way to make sure your printer is maintaining the proper scale is to select the “no scaling” or “custom scale=100%” option.

Finally, set your page range to “1” so that only the first page prints for now.
