Found this today. I always have trouble resizing applique patterns. Waste time, ink and paper trying to get it right. This sounds pretty simple so I thought I'd share.

I do use a copy machine Memaw but deciding what percentage to enlarge or shrink it always presents a problem for me. I am hoping this formula of hers will save me time and effort....and supplies!
