Free Project Friday: Feeling Green

March 18, 2011, 12:40 pm  Posted by needlearts

Spring in the air is the buzz around the office today. For most of us that means getting outside after work. But for the college basketball fans in this office, the middle of March means sitting at the screen after work compulsively checking scores. About a dozen of us are all holding on to our four leaf clovers as we watch our brackets unfold. Maybe I did eat dinner at the computer last night–don’t judge.

Even more exciting: In honor of springtime, St. Patrick’s Day, and all things green, we have our first potluck of the year today! Green foods from kale salad to key lime pie will make an appearance. I’m bringing green tea cookies, which will either be a big hit or go untouched.

In the spirit of spring potlucks and cooking in general, we’re posting a green-trimmed apron pattern today. Just make sure whether you’re sewing or cooking (or watching college basketball) this weekend, open the windows and enjoy the weather if you can!

    Thanks for the pattern. How/where do you enlarge it?

      Thom O'Hearn says:

      You have a couple options for enlargement:
      -You can print the pattern at 100% and enlarge it with a copy machine or at your local copy store.
      -In many image viewing programs you can enlarge the pattern 400% and tile the printouts on your home printer. For example, in Adobe Acrobat Pro you can hit print, which will bring up the print dialog box. In that box there is a drop down list next to “Page Scaling.” Select “Tile Large Pages” from the list and type 400% next to “Tile Scale.”
