I find it difficult to review a product I have yet to paint. It looks good. I downloaded it and printed it and the pattern portions and instructions are only 4 x 5". I have to enlarge them to a readable size, which uses up lots of coloured ink. I couldn't find anywhere that would allow me to enlarge them before printing them and do not recall this happening with patterns in the past.
I have reviewed the pattern instructions and tips and look forward to actually doing the painting. The tips will be especially helpful.
