Do you know how many hours it takes to write the instructions for a pattern?
Well, if you want people to be able to understand your instructions, it takes a lot. I am up to my eyeballs in pattern instructions!
I have been working on the instructions for the “Urban Diaper Bag“, and the “Macy Giggles” sundress, for about a week. I feel like I have another weeks worth of work, but I need to have them done by this weekend. STRESS!!
Anyway!! I was wondering if any of you would mind sharing with me the things that you like, and dis-like about patterns and their instructions.
*Is there a line of patterns that you love/hate, and why? *
*What do you find more helpful- lots of words, or lots of illustrations? *
*What kind of patterns are you looking for?*
Hopefully I will be back to funny sewing escapades soon.
It is only 3 weeks until Quilt Market in Pittsburgh! WHEW-HEW!
