    I have tried for 2 hours to print your Tohoku bag pattern which I love. I tried all of your suggestions and more and can not get it to print the correct size in google. Can you send me another format possibly? Thanks,
    Debbie

    You are very welcome. Do take a look around I Am Momma Hear Me Roar too. Cherie is the very generous designer of this bag. She has tons more to inspire us with!

    Hi there! Get in touch with Cherie who designed the pattern. She would know exactly what is happening and can hopefully help.
