Again we are giving you a
pricking. We would like you to make an insertion which could fit into a 6
inch / 15 cm clear plastic ruler.
The pricking must be used as
printed. Do not enlarge or reduce size. You find a lot of pin holes, but
you do not have to use all of them. Skip the holes you do not like or
need, but ... DO NOT MAKE NEW HOLES! You may use a gimp. You may use white
or color. Anything goes - except new holes.
Hint: You can enlarge the pricking 150 % to design on. Then you can reduce your design to 67 % and it should be back to its original size. The pricking measures from the top row to bottom row 5 3/4 inches.
