    It is now the end of August, so hopefully you will have been able to open the file by now. I saved the pdf and will be happy to email it to you, I just don’t know your email address. Post again with where you would like it sent and I will get it to you.

    I have been looking for a pattern for these. My baby girl sleeps through the night when she sleeps in one similar to this. She is getting bigger and I really want her to still sleep in one! Plus my new mom goal is to learn to sew so I can make these as gifts one day!!!

    Hi I foster abandoned babies and these swaddle blankets are SOOOO expensive.

    PLEASE could you email me the pattern as I am unable to open the PDF and would love to whip a few up before our next baby arrives.
    thanks a ton!

    Hello, I would LOVE to make this, but when I print it on my home printer, it seems to not print all of the pattern. Is there a way I can get this pattern to work? Thank you sooo much!

  9. anneweaver on November 16, 2009 7:57 pm

    I’m not really sure. I can’t give definite info without seeing your computer setup. Try checking the scaling on your printer settings to be sure that it’s printing at the correct size.

  11. Rachel Low on December 17, 2009 5:51 am

    Thank you for replying so quickly I can’t wait to try it out.

  12. Rachel Low on December 17, 2009 7:37 am

    There is a pattern with instructions available here

    I’m not a good enough sewer to figure it out myself with no instructions.

    People seem to have trouble downloading that one as well.

    but after reading the comments I was able to download the pdf.

    After a little bit of a wait the PDF even loaded properly in a new window when I used internet explorer rather than firefox.

    If it still doesn’t load for you try the direct download like she says.

    In INTERNET EXPLORER right click on the download link when the window pops up Choose “save target as” choose a destination folder and voila you have it saved on your computer. ;)

    As far as printing goes, I had to Open the PDF file with ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR one page at a time. In adobe illustrator printing options include “tile” “full pages” Your pattern will print out on (4) 8/1/2 x 11 sheets. According to adobe’s website that option should be available in acrobat, but it is not available for me. Maybe you need to have Acrobat Professional not just the reader.

    So like I said I had to use “open with” to open the PDF in another ADOBE program, WORKED for me with Illustrator, you should try it in PHOTOSHOP or INDESIGN if you have one of these programs.

  13. Rachel Low on December 17, 2009 7:44 am

    This is why we can’t print large pages. You need the full version of adobe acrobat not just the free reader.

    Hi Keith,

    The tile print feature is part of Acrobat not Reader, which is why you do not see it in the Adobe Reader print menu. If you’re interested in testing the tiling capability try downloading a 30-day trial of Acrobat 9 at:

  14. Rachel Low on December 17, 2009 7:53 am

    If you are lucky enough to get the pattern to load in Internet Explorer the printing options were available for me to tile large pages. So print it out directly from the web browser. Probably a good idea to make sure you have the latest version of internet explorer and the adobe reader plugin
    good luck every one

    Thanks for posting this! This download has been giving people lots of trouble, but your research and explanation will help make it easier. You rock!!

  16. Lucy on January 13, 2010 9:29 pm

    hi I would love this pattern also. Please email it to me.

  17. Donna Bellamy on February 8, 2010 11:59 am

    I have two grandchildren on the way and would love this pattern. I tried to download it, but it just keeps freezing.

  18. Amy Ryan on February 23, 2010 10:09 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I can’t get it to print correctly for me. Will you please email me the tiled version? Thanks again.

  19. Jen on March 17, 2010 11:42 am

    I seem to be having the same problem with the printing. I only get a few peices and can’t print it. Can it be emailed? Would like to make one for my sister in law. Thanks.
