If you've been here a while, you know that I am a proud children's pattern designer. I have very much enjoyed working with Craftsy to sell my patterns. They also allow me to offer FREE patterns as well!
Have YOU thought about selling patterns before,
but didn't know where to start?
Craftsy makes it so easy to open up your very own pattern shop and offer your patterns to the public. Best of all, it's FREE! No fees, no commissions, unlike most other sites. It's a huge community of sewists, knitters, crocheters, and other crafters sharing their love for creating.
Here's all you need to get started selling your very own patterns:
1) A PayPal account...because you want to get PAID. All funds from purchases go directly to your PayPal account (student, business, or premier accounts only)
2) A PDF File. All patterns are instant download, and must be in PDF format to load correctly.
3) A Nice Photo. You want shoppers to see how amazing your finished product can be, so using good photos helps! You must use at least one, but can upload up to 5 to show off the finished product.
4) Pattern Description. There is a super-easy form to fill out for each pattern. It just asks for the basics of the pattern to help shoppers find what they're looking for. I have filled these out LOTS of times, and they are easy and fast.
Enjoy starting your Indie Pattern adventure!
