Change pattern size tutorial at Pinbroidery

resize the pricking patternThere has been some discussion in previous posts about the size of the Pinbroidery patterns. Some customers said that they were too large. Other customers said that if they wanted to reduce the size of the patterns they know how to do it using an image editing program.

To help those who are not so technically advance in the field of image editing I have published a step-by-step illustrated tutorial on the Pinbroidery web site. This shows how to take a screen snapshot of the pricking pattern using the “Print Screen” button. It then shows how to change the pattern size using Microsoft Paint, a program you will have on your computer if you use Microsoft Windows.

If you find this tutorial useful please let me know in a comment to this post or the Pinbroidery post.

    Thank you for the suggestion Nancy. I have now added Mac instructions to the article on the Pinbroidery website.

    I would like to use smaller patterns and think this is a great idea

    I’ve just finished stitching this pattern. I made the pattern slightly smaller and pricked it out on a bright red card which I then stitched using white cotton for the flowers and the coils and bright green for the leaves and the wording. I have not mounted it yet but it already looks terrific. Thank you for such a lovely pattern.
