Pattern Testers Wanted!

As I work my way through posting these charm pack pattern ideas, I’ve had requests for paper copies of these patterns. Currently, I’m sending a couple versions in rotation out free with every charm pack purchase over at Whipstitch Etsy, but I have a bunch of new ideas whose patterns need refining.

I’m looking for some folks who might be interested in test-driving some of these puppies for me, giving me some feedback, and getting cool free stuff in exchange! Here’s how it would work:

  • email me and let me know you’re interested: deborah (at) whipstitchfabrics (dot) com
  • I reply with a PDF pattern, which you download, print and put to use on your scrap pile/the charm pack of your choice/your sister’s favorite shirt/whathaveyou
  • you shoot photos of the finished project and email them to me
  • I reply again, this time with a few questions about where we can improve and refine the patterns and instructions
  • you get a free copy of ALL the final versions of the patterns (I’m anticipating around a dozen) once they’re edited and finalized, and we post photos of your finished project on the blog
If you’re up for the challenge, let me know!  I need about a dozen sewers, and I currently have only the vaguest of selection criteria.  Get in now while the gettin’s good!  Once the patterns are in their finished formats, they’ll retail for $2-$8 each in the shop–and you’ll laugh all the way to the bottom of your scrap pile.
