    above it says “Read the rules and get your project started.” Well I could not find a link to the rules nor could i find them on the Burda website anywhere. Do we use the patterns to create a new look or do we make it according to the pattern. Please advise.

    Yo! The patterns that are supposed to be downloaded per your instructions “You can download two of these magic patterns for free below” are not downloadable. Can someone at Burda fix this please?

    The first paragraph says how to enter…..“To kickstart your design fun, we’re launching a brand new sewing contest! Use any pattern from this book, and enter your project to win. You can download two of these magic patterns for free below.” And the ’instructions" are the patterns.

      Hi, the free patterns now have thumbnails attached. There are not specific instructions, they are meant to be used as guides.
