How It Works
- Once you open the download, you simply ensure the settings on your printer are set for dual sided printing and press print.
- From the printed pages, remove full kitten illustration from the back page which doesn't need to be folded and can be used for you to transfer the design onto fabric.
- Then simply fold the remaining printed A4 sheets in half to create your booklet.
Feel free to transfer the image yourself onto a piece of fabric or alternatively, you can purchase the printed fabric design from the online shop which can be sent to you, along with most other items you will need to complete the project such as a hoop or stabiliser.
The finished sewn Cute Kitten can be cut out after completing the project and can be appliqued onto other craft projects such as a quilt, a bag or a t-shirt. Or attached to a background cloth and framed as a picture.
