My first crochet pattern is done

What I have been putting off for about a year now, is now done.  My Etsy store is up and running and my first pattern has been tested, tested and retested, made into a pdf, pictures done and it is now listed for sale. Yipee!!!! Why did I put this off so long?

I have a few dozen crochet patterns that I have designed and written, but that does not mean that they are done.  That just means that I can use it.

In order to offer a crochet pattern for sale, here are the things you must do:
1. Come up with an idea.
2. Work on creating the item and write down the stitches and steps used.
3.  Write, re-write and make changes to get it the way you envisioned it.
4.  Make up a sample.
5. Get someone or a few people to test your pattern.
6.  Get the perfect picture (the picture is everything)
7.  Type up your pattern in a professional manner using some type of desk top publishing program.
8.  Covert your pattern into a PDF
9.  Place it for sale, cross your fingers that someone else will think your baby is as cute as you do.

If you want to see more of my crochet,  here is my new crochet blog,  I will be busy over there for awhile. Visit here at Crunchy Crochet

Here is my baby:

I want to thank everyone who wrote to encourage me and all your kind words on the baby penny loafer pattern.  Stay tuned, the best is yet to come.

    Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up! And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! 🙂
