My sales goal for January was 60 patterns. I sold 101.
My pattern publishing goal was 2 since I had patterns in my folder that didn't need much done to them to publish and I just squeaked in a third one. The underwear pattern went together very quickly because it only has the one option. Making and checking three or four options takes a bit more time.
If you want to make some doll clothes for a bit of fun and not spend a lot of money on patterns you will like my patterns. My instructions don't tell you how to sew but they do tell you how you can make clothes if you have only done patchwork. Things like how to gather or how to fit a collar are included as well as some friendly tips for how I go about various techniques.
Now I am working towards creating perfect samples to show off my patterns so that people with a doll clothes business will be tempted to by my patterns.
I have a presence on Etsy now but the majority of my sales come from Craftsy. I make the price a bit cheaper on Craftsy because there are no market place fees.
Most of my sales are to the US.
I had customers in all these states in January.
I also had customers from Canada.
Some from the United Kingdom
Some from Australia.
and New Zealand.
