here) but what I can tell you is this... ALOT of effort goes into it. More than some would like to think. The pattern testing, photo taking or drawing up digital illustrations, the actual pattern writing itself. It all takes so much time, and unless you've tried it yourself I guess it's a bit hard to understand why some pattern makers ask anywhere from $6-$10 on average for a bag or quilt pattern.
To most its just a simple PDF, or some instructions printed on paper. In reality there is a lot of love and tons of creativity and effort put into these patterns. I highly suggest you read Lindsey's blog post. Im also joining her in committing to purchase one pattern per week for the month of May.
So.... for my first purchase I chose Aneela Hoey's pattern the All In One Box Pouch. I plan to use it for small EPP projects like hexies and hand embroidery supplies. Its a great bag to take on-the-go and Ive actually already started making it :) Please check out Aneela's blog and search #allinoneboxpouch on Instagram for some great photos of completed projects!
