I finally decided to try writing a pattern. I've thought of it for awhile... But I decided to go for it! I spent 3.5 hours this morning typing up directions, trying to make them very clear and concise. The most difficult thing for me is consistency. I have a touch of random in my personality so being consistent is a challenge.
Now I'm ready to make some illustrations for it. I thought I could use my new EQ7 program, but I'm not very good at it yet. I HATE learning new computer programs! Ugh. I know it'll be useful... But it takes so long to learn! I could be sewing!
So, to complicate matters, I'm making a bag pattern, not a quilt pattern, so I really couldn't figure out how to diagram it using EQ7. Lame. Tomorrow I'm going to draw diagrams using graph paper. Not fancy, but it should work.
I emailed a class form today to Material Girls where I hope to teach some quilting classes this winter. Since I've modified the pattern that I'm teaching, I realized I need a new pattern. That has led me on my wild pattern making bonanza today! Wish me luck!
if anyone would like to be a pattern-tester let me know and I can send it to you to try out. All I ask in return is that you give me constructive criticism so that I can make a better pattern! First 5 people to request it will get a free pattern.
