Take 2 a PDF Pattern giveaway
Today I worked on new pictures for my duffle bag pattern.
I made this duffle pattern back in the summer. started working on it back in the spring but couldn get it quite right so I kept delaying and waiting for a better design idea to come into my head. finally came to me in June right before we took a trip to the beach and I made bags for all of us girls in the family. was so happy with how I simplified the construction and thrilled that when I got back from our trip that I could work on the pattern. 4th of July came and all the other summer stuff and I didn get it done until early August. knew this was not the best time to put a vacation bag in the shop but I had no idea that this bag would be such a flop! mean I don think I have sold this more than 10 times. is BAD! decided today that maybe my baby (that is what I sometimes call my patterns) just needs a makeover. had her first spend the night with a favorite cousin and I packed it up for her. thought, “Hey! This is one cute bag!” thinks it is the cat meow (in fact she thinks everything is the cat meow). It is not the real size of the child version of the bag on the pattern since it was a trial. turned out too tall and I thou ray ban wayfarer ght it looked like a bowling ball bag. it funny how you can be so disappointed in a project right after you do it and then a few weeks/ months later you look at it again and see how cute it really was?
So, instead of making another duffle in better fabrics (which was my first thought when I wanted to give my baby a makeover), I just tried out my new picture taking skills from this post. is one that is kinda cute but isn going to make the cut. I like to call this one duffle tower
and this will be the new main picture with my recently acquired photoshop skills.
I am hoping this will do the trick to get this pattern going at least a little bit better. What do you all think? I need to make a new bag with better fabrics? is this pattern just not interesting enough for people to want to make? forward to hearing some feedback! your comment about my baby (I still talking about the pattern here) on Wednesday, November 10th, I choose a random ray ban wayfarer commenter to send a free pattern of the getaway duffle. Make sure you leave your email in the private comment section so that I can contact you!
Hannah P. is the winner of the pattern! is her comment.
I really really liked hearing all of your comments. much good advice about how to market this bag. heard what you had to say and changes are in the works. down through the comments if you have a moment and see what all these savvy women had to say. Stay tuned!Posted at 03:40 PM in give away, photo taking, Sewing, sewing Permalink
The bag shape is great. Maybe what it needs is just a l ray ban wayfarer ittle bit more details. Adding some piping to ray ban wayfarer the end seams and maybe a cord in the folded over handle would give it a little more structure and visual “umph.” These changes would not really take that much more work to add to the pattern, either. I was actually thinking of purchasing this pattern and making these changes myself. We have to drive 400 mi to visit family, and one of these per person would stuff into the trunk much easier than 2 large suitcases. Maybe a picture of them all lined up in the trunk of a car would be a good idea! Hope this helps!
