Now that I have a jumbo computer monitor, I thought it fitting my images grow in size as well!
Ladies and gent, please check out my very first ePattern.
How to make a Perfect Size Reversible Lunchtime Pouch in 60 min!
It's easy. I'll hold your hand all the way. Promise. <Ahem> It costs US$6, currently available at my Etsy. Go check it out. Heart it, kiss it, buy it, whatever you want. Your comments are welcome too.
Now, a bit of history. About a year ago, I started working on producing a ePattern. Here are my excuses why it took so long: laziness, hardware issues, software issues plus I booked too many craft markets. Anyhoo, this year, I'm very free, right? But I was still NATO (No Action Talk Only).
Finally, in June, I decided to chain myself to the computer and get it done. My butt was literally stuck to the chair. I swear my rear end became so flat it's planking! Through sheer willpower, I resolved all the hardware and software issues and finally, it's done.
To be honest, I'm quite exhausted. I took at least 100 images. Then I had to go through the 100 images to select the better ones. Then the editing. (the sewing just took a tiny % of the time) I think I spent waaay too much time on this little ePattern. But you understand it's my FIRST one. It's like giving birth to a baby. Just keep fussing over it. Btw, it's a girl.
Any questions, so far? hahaha. Do you want to know why I chose my Perfect Size Reversible Lunchtime Pouch to be my first ePattern? Well, it's the first pouch I taught another human being to sew. Um, that human being Fiona. But I did re-invent the pouch a little just to give it a bit of kick.
The first pouch I made looked lonely. So I gave it a sibling.
Before I knew it, there were four.
Somewhere after 80 images, I went a little cuckoo. Because I started to imagine the pouches were little puppies romping playfully.
Would you believe I'm already starting work on my next ePattern? Plus, I have a couple of FREE tutes coming up soon. See you real soon.
