What do you think about the Pdf Quilt Patterns?
- Most patterns sell between $8-12. Why some are $12, I'm not sure, but they better be giving you a lot. LOL. Anyway, you figure you design it once, you have the initial fabric cost, time, re-dos, etc. (aka front research/start-up cost).
- You need to write it up and package it. Which by the way, I think there are designers that really do a great job there and then others, not so much. Both in photos and directons.
- Then you determine how much you want invest to sell the pattersn. Tradionally, your efforts will pay off in volume sold. You could start off with local shops - just printing a few, marketing them on Etsy (which is where I believe the downloading originate) - produce a PDF, or try and sell it to a pattern company or start your own pattern company. The later two probably have you making more samples, getting a booth at market plus having more than one pattern to market....
