Pattern for Scalloped Fingerless Gloves

October 23, 2012 10:02 pm

Now live on Etsy and Craftsy!

I had an order today for my Variations on a Theme booklet about the magical transforming motif and all the different things you can do with it.  The customer also ordered the pattern for the large gloves variation, no realizing it was already included in the booklet.  I offered to either refund her money for the glove pattern or send her the pattern for these scalloped gloves (which is what she chose).

I’ve had the pattern for these scalloped gloves done for over a year now, but had never gotten around to listing on Etsy or Craftsy.  I finally got it listed tonight and it’s nice to have it up and available.  I think this counts for my UnFinished Object of the week.  (I have a project from last week that I finished too, but haven’t gotten around to posting about it yet.)

It’s also occurred to me that I should put my handout on non-double-stitch chains up on Craftsy as a free download.  I usually send it along with my other patterns on Etsy, but Craftsy is an automatic download for the user, which is VERY nice for me, but means they don’t get the handout.

At some point I will also list the pattern for the coin purse which I also basically have done, but want to run though again before listing.  The tricky bit with the coin purse is that it’s designed around a specific size and brand of purse clasps.  It’s the smaller sized of the Everything Mary brand.  I’ve found it at Joann’s and had no problem finding it in Southern CA, but so far have only found one Joann’s store in the Seattle area that carries it and of course now I can’t remember which one it was.

I’m thinking about doing 3 listings for the coin purse.  One with just the pattern, one with the pattern and a clasp for those who can’t find them locally, and one that’s just the clasp for people who want to make more than one.  What do you think?  Does that seem like a reasonable solution?

I vote for the three different listings!

Gwen, that’s what I’m leaning towards as well. There’s a little bit of prep that needs to be done to the clasps to get them ready for tatting the purse. The other pieces need for that are easy to find, but I’m thinking that if I do the prep work it would be a nice added value and let someone start tatting right away when they receive the pattern.
