I think one of my favorite things about blogging is sharing things with everyone (for free). And one of my least favorite things about life is that student loans aren't free (neither is fabric, sewing supplies, food, rent, diapers.... and the list goes on. and on. and on. lol). So after a lot of thought I've decided that it's time to start adding patterns to my Etsy Shop and my new Craftsy Shop. I think my hubby will really appreciate me supporting my own sewing habit more too. ;)
I already have a Limited Use license pattern of my Scrap Attack Block listed in my Craftsy Shop. (Giving you permission to sell items you make with the pattern.) And have sold a few already!! Thank you everyone!!! Big Hugs to you!!
Last night I finished up and posted my [4x5] Modern Bee Block: Two Stars Squared
I'm super nervous about this, and really excited. :) It's not like I list all the things in my Etsy Shop for free. I don't know why I feel so bad about selling my patterns. I'm sure I'll feel better when I sell one. ;) Anyway, I just wanted to let you know about my exciting new adventure!! Wish me luck!! :)
p.s. I recommend shopping from my Craftsy Store over my Etsy shop for PDF patterns. Craftsy has it set up that when you buy a pattern it is ready for instant download. You don't have to wait for me to email you the pattern! I love that feature! So anyway, if you don't want to wait, go Craftsy. If I list more patterns I will always have them in my Craftsy Store, but maybe not always in my Etsy Shop. I'm going to wait and see how the two compare for sales and probably decide from there. One thing I like about Craftsy from my end, and for anyone that wants to sell patterns, is that they also don't charge fees for listing OR selling patterns! You only have to pay your paypal fees. Etsy on the other hand, does charge a small fee for listing an item, and a small fee for selling. So, in the end, everyone wins with Craftsy I think. I really appreciate how they have their store set up. :)
