 Thanks!!

I only have one problem, I'm trying to enlage the pattern.
But I can't get the size right, its about 7ins I think but it won't fit on the paper.  Huh

True, that was a problem for me too.

One way to manage is by using photoshop.  Use your rectangular marquis tool to select the area you want to print.  (I don't think any part of the pattern is larger than a piece of paper).  Then go to print preview and choose the "print selected area" option.  For example, if you select only the elephant body, only that portion of the pattern should print.

Let me know if that works for you!

Or maybe someone else has a better suggestion?  I'm sure there's an easier/better way.

Sorry about the pictures, I had apparently exceeded my allocated data transfer... oops  Sad

Anyway, I *think* they are fixed now.

Ahhh, I wanna make a HUGE one out of corduroy! And a small one for my grandma because she loves elephants, but I don't think she'd want a mammoth one. O_o Haha. Thanks so much for the tutorial and pattern pieces!
