I started making some of the lovely eggs seen on RetroMama’s blog. Then, I got the bright idea that I needed some larger eggs. With permission from RetroMama, I started enlarging the pattern.
This might be a good time to explain that I’m not good at spatial things, so I thought it was just a matter of using Print Artist to enlarge it, keeping the same proportions. This little thing was the result.
Bit of a hip problem, isn’t there Ms Egg?
So, back to the pattern where I adjusted the width of the pattern, keeping the height. And I ended up with this.
Oh dear. What is this?
In the end, I took the original pattern and freehanded ¼” all the way around, then another ¼”, and I finally ended up with a lovely enlarged egg.
I can say that this was a good stash buster for those smaller pieces that accumulate. I used up a lot of them with my various prototypes.
