What size needle do you use?

What kind of fabric do you use?

How do I get a PDF file?

How do I print an 10 or 11 inch pattern?
Set your printer to actual size and print 2 A4 papers and tape them together. (The pattern is designed on an A3 format).
Why do you start stitching in the middle of a shape?
Starting from the middle insures that the shape is as symmetrical as possible. Never make the longest stitch longer than 1 inch/ 2,5 cm. If you make it longer the stitches will not lay as flat on the fabric.
