Day 1. If you want to watch the VIDEO you can watch it HERE in our facebook group!

1. Print your pattern. If you are printing in A0 you will print the last two pages of the pattern at a copy /shop or on a large format printer.
If you are printing A4 or letter size, make sure your printer is set to Page Scaling NONE or print at 100%. Make sure your 1 inch square or 5cm square measures correctly.
2. Take pages 1-4 and put them into a stack. Trim off the bottom and right edge of those pages. Then lay side by side, matching up the diamonds. Tape at the top, bottom and diamonds to attach.
3. Take pages 5,6,7 and repeat this process to assemble the next row.  Once you assemble 5,6,7 attach it to the row above it. Continue until the pattern is complete.
4. Choose your fabric and pop it into the washing machine!
5. Come back tomorrow to figure out your size, cut your pattern pieces and cut out your fabric!

See you soon!
