Description

Start an Online Sewing Pattern Business!

Make a steady income from your passion for sewing and design.

I love to sew and I bet you do, too! I used to dream about building a business that allowed me to sew every single day. For years, I worked in my studio sewing handmade soft toys and sold them at craft fairs and online. I made a little money – enough to cover expenses and have a little left over for buying more fabric – but my business never truly earned a profit. I started to feel like my dream just wasn't a viable reality.

Everything changed for me when I decided to shift my business to focus on selling sewing patterns. The first thing I did was create a sewing pattern for a plush rubber duck, and I put it up for sale in my online shop for $9. I sold two that first day. On the second day I sold two more, for a total of $36 – the same amount I would have sold a finished duck for. In the year and a half since, I've sold that pattern hundreds of times, and added nearly three dozen more patterns to my shop. Finally, I had figured out a way to build a profitable business around my passion for sewing.

And so can you!

If you have at least one original design, you can begin a sewing pattern business.

This 45-page Insider's Guide will provide you with everything you need to get your pattern business off the ground including:

Choosing a project that will be popular as a pattern.
Taking effective step-by-step photos
Writing excellent pattern instructions
Photographing your project so that it sells
Choosing software for page layout and template vectorization
Using low-tech options for page layout and templates without having to learn graphics programs
Finding and using pattern testers
Pricing your patterns
Ecommerce options
Preparing for an effective launch
Establishing yourself as a designer in the industry

(Note that this ebook is not a step-by-step guide to creating vectors of your pattern templates, or creating page layouts. It's also not about how to produce print patterns for wholesale distribution. There are other great resources for those things!)

Free yourself from worrying about creating inventory that might not sell.

Earn passive income.

Make your business profitable.

And carve out more time in your day to be creative!
