New Booklet is ready!

I finally got the new horse booklet done. There are some with a lot of detail, so more time redoing them and cleaning them up when I scan them in. It has 4 of my original patterns that have been done with punch, hooking and painting. Then I added the two new ones with different versions, as well as, the colors I used in those pieces.

It is a great book for punching or hooking, the designs work well, with both. I have raised the cost of this one to 14.00.
I decided to make these patterns into a booklet, which saves from buying one pattern at a time, so I thought it fair. What do you think? I have also been asked to do print patterns and I am thinking about it. But, I do enjoy doing the epatterns, they are cost effective, so I can charge less than I would if I sold them as separate patterns and you can get them and start working on them, the same day you pay. Which way do you prefer? Epatterns or Print?

I also had a request for the sewing kitty and made her up today. She is such a fun pattern and makes a great gift for your sewing friends. I may make another one as a gift and use a lighter background, this time. She is sold as a single. You can find my patterns on my ecrater site, link to the left. I really do enjoy seeing the pieces others make from my designs, so please share them with us.

You have great patterns, Debbie! :) As for my choice of paper vs. epattern... I kinda like the instant gratification really. :)

Great booklet! I'm not picky either way sounds good to me!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Needle punch is something I've never tried. I've always wondered how hard it would be. Maybe I should give it a try sometime!

Your work is wonderful! On stitcheries, I buy both ways...cardstock through the mail and then also the e-patterns. As long as I have ALL the directions, I would buy either way!

Have a great day!

I think it would be nice to have the option of the printed pattern because if someone does NOT have a printer then they can still make the pattern. I had a fax and copier for a full year without having printer capabilities because my computer refused to recognize my brand new, very pricey printer and I was not going to go out and buy a new one.
I paint and my favorite designer went e-patterns only ....and I had to find a new favorite. I was bummed and she lost my business.
Most folkd that like printed patterns recognize the extra cost involved in printed work and really don't mind the added cost. =)

Debbie, I personally like paper patterns. Don't ask me why!?!? And thanks for stopping by my blog and entering my give away. I'm going to your ecrater store right now!

I am appreciating all the comments. I do have customers who like the instant downloads, so I think maybe I can do both. I have had requests for my penny rug patterns too, so need to take the time to make those up into real patterns. My problem is I just make things, hate having to think while I do it;)

Wonderful punch needle. What kind of needle do you prefer.

I use the cameo ultra punch.
I have the luxo and find it cumbersome.
I got the fons and porter and found the needles to be scratchy. I haven't tried any of the other brands.
