We tried different size paper, different orientations, no margins, etc. Nothing worked quite right. We believe that the pattern itself was designed to be printed off A4 paper (which, by the way must be difficult to find), so I emailed Jeremy & Trudy about what to do. I got a response back in 15 mintues and a copy of the pattern to print off on 8.5 x 11 paper. Our printer still didn’t like it, but Bret is taking it to work to print off and thinks it should come out correctly this time. So, if anyone is having similar problems, let me know and I will send you the PDF that Hot Patterns was nice enough to send.
I also ordered some hotfix, square, faceted, metal nailheads for my bag embelishments. I hope that they will work out the way I’m envisioning them in my head. While I was “shopping”, I noticed that there were some glow in the dark nailheads – oooooh, how fun is that? I almost ordered some, but refrained – I still have some glow in the dark thread that I need to use first!
UPDATE: Bret printed this off at work and had the most success with getting all the markings on an 11×17 sheet of paper. This may be our own printer issue, but if you have similar printing issues, you might want to try this larger sheet of paper. I’m taping it up tonight and will let you know if it measures out correctly.
