Reversing patterns

I have a "million" Xmas stocking cross stitch patterns the face "right". How do I "flip" the pattern so that it faces left w/o getting confused?

    you can take it to any office depot and ask the print center to reverse the image for you . I have done this several times and never had a problem. The only thing you need to be aware of is the the symbols will also be reversed so you will need to refer back to the original symbols list to make sure you are using the correct color floss for the symbol. This is especially true for mirabilia and nora corbet (more detailed designs) as the symbols can be a problem ( example / will be \ if reversed and \ will be /) It can be confusing so be careful when doing this.
