Hi Liz - I just mimicked what I drew initially as I continued to develop the design. Hope this helps! Jan

I just remembered that another commenter said to make sure your print settings are set to landscape rather than portrait. Mine defaults to whichever the document uses, but not all printers do. That might be something to check!

Hello Emily - Thanks for your comment and suggestion about this pattern. I just test-printed the pattern (b/c I haven't done so in a long time), and it printed fine for me. Not sure what the issue might be for others who are having trouble - Have a nice night! Jan

Your crocs rock, Manda! Your heart will, too, in time. Just like you said. Hard to imagine as you stand so deeply into today that tomorrow could be a smidge different. xo Jan

I'm so sorry Manda. Hugs to you and your family.
yumyumyumyumyum! We are big pie fans here, too, Lizzy. I grew up eating round, yellow layer cakes with choc icing and sprinkles for bdays - it's still very nostalgic, but I don't really like it anymore. Not when there could be a pie in its place! And so it is. Pies for everyone - for every occasion! Thanks for sharing your cooking notes and links - much appreciated!!

Hello Diane - I'm glad you were able to print the pattern okay. I'm not sure what's causing the printing issue regarding the instructions & images - they print okay for me here. Try test printing from another post or website to see what happens. Then maybe try again. Wish I knew what to tell you. It wasn't my intention that folks would print all the photos & instructions, but I understand the need to do so if you're sewing area is not near your computer. Best of luck! Jan

Yes! You can totally do this, and tie dye would be great! I know you have much more sewing experience than me. Just make sure to cut generously so you have plenty to work with - and just keep taking it in as needed. And make sure you can get it over your head and shimmy into it! I had to be cut out of an experiment a few years ago! Thanks for commenting, Mary!!

Really, really love your Bloom quilt - and this sunray pic is pretty, too! I think there should be a #bloomalong (maybe there is and I don't know it!). Cheers Aneela!

Love how all the action of the quilt is contained within the wide margins. Really pretty! And you look adorable in the sunshine and your yella boots! (and pink scarf!!)

Hello Meredith - I'm glad it worked out for you in the end. It's not designed as a big bag, and the pattern pieces are the size they're supposed to be for the intended size of the finished item. Seam allowances are all 3/8" and are included in the pattern pieces already, as you would find with any standard pattern. Adjusting seam allowances up or down on a project is not always a straight-forward apples-to-apples change. Changes like this can throw the entire project out of kilter b/c the seams won't match up as intended. Hope you have better luck next time. Jan

You're welcome! I'm trying not to eat them all in one day b/c that would defeat the purpose. I could tho!

Happiness begets happiness. Awareness and knowledge are powerful tools in changing one's mindset and path. They are gifts as much as the resulting happiness you're rockin' with. Never forget you have access to them. Yeeeeeehaaaaa! (Now I feel happy, too!) (If this is posted twice, feel free to delete!)

Haha! Well, I double appreciate your willingness to watch! I really hope you're inspired enough to give a garment a try. I've purchased a few patterns for skirts and aprons, so now I need to keep it up! My sewing machine is on a vintage vanity table - yes, the marble top gets chilly! You can see more of it here: http://daisyjanie.typepad.com/daisyjanie/2010/10/a-tiny-tour-of-my-tiny-workspace.html

Thank you for taking the time to watch, Maya! It was interesting to see the 'hand memory' of repetitive actions!

Sometimes I become indignant toward those closest to me (really only my husband) for not realizing and asking what I need help with, when it seems so apparent to me that I'm drowning at times. And then I get double mad that I have to be the one to speak up and ask for assistance. It's my own game - I don't want to ask for help b/c then I'm truly admitting that I need it. If someone asks me instead, then it's like, "Oh? Do I need help? Huh. I guess I could use some...." Bad, bad, bad! Meta awareness! I have to say, tho, that I am so accumstomed to not asking and not receiving help that I am quite resourceful and motivated in ways that I know I wouldn't be otherwise. Crazy is as crazy does, yes?

Incredible stand, Manda!!! So inviting and tasteful from top-to-toe! Love how you used your own pieces from home - I'll need to remember that trick! The wallpaper almost gives the illusion of a stone hearth - made it seem even more warm!

That's a great shortcut! We're due for a batch here!
