Each letter is designed to fit an entire 8.5"x11" piece of paper. Due to some printer settings, you may notice a thin, blank border area around each letter (in other words, the lines will not reach completely to the sides). If you cannot print without these margins, simply use a pen or pencil to continue the line to the edge.
A little tip if you plan to place the letters right next to each other, use a thin strip of solid fabric in between the letters so they don't run together--see the NOEL pillow picture.
You can shrink or enlarge the pattern to whatever size you need! See the last picture for the pattern printed at 100% and at 50%. Great for adding a personal touch to quilts, bags, or garlands. You can also sew the entire alphabet together for the perfect baby quilt!
Please note, there are NO instructions on how to paper piece included with this pattern. You must be familiar with this technique in order to use the pattern. Numbers followed by "(b)" indicate where background fabric should be used. If you shrink the pattern less than 50%, I would recommend adding 1/4" seam allowance to the outside so you don't have super skinny sides to some of the letters.
