Pattern testers needed! {Apply within}

15:50

The long awaited Bow Pleat bag pattern is nearly upon us..... and I need testers!



 The bag is aimed at intermediate sewists up but if you think you're a beginner and you've been sewing for 6 months or longer then chances are you need to stop being so modest and consider yourself an intermediate!

 The pattern comes with an adjustable strap, a zipped interior pocket and however many pockets as you want to fit in. I usually stuff my bags full of pockets! I'd like for the testers to at least have a go at the adjustable strap and zipped pocket, even though they are optional extras, to test this pattern fully.

 In an ideal world the pattern will be ready to email out in pdf form this time next week (if not a bit earlier) and you need to have your feedback back with me for Wednesday 13th June. I know it's not long, but it is over a weekend if that helps?

 Leave me a comment below letting me know you're interested and that you can definitely hit that deadline and I'll email you the fabric/hardware requirements so that you can have it all ready for when the email arrives.

 It would help if you followed my blog in some way whether that's GFC or blog lovin' or however you roll, just so that you we can connect and I can pretend you're my friend.

 Oh, and be harsh with your critique...but not too harsh, this is my first ever pattern and I made it up myself!





p.s. there's no monetry reward for testing my pattern but when it's all finished and confirmed I'll send you a final copy and if you have a blog I'll donate one for a giveaway. (no strings!)

p.p.s. I only need around a dozen testers so if there's a huge massive crowd wanting to test it then I guess I'll have to randomise it! :) xx

p.p.p.s. Ok people, PLEASE make sure your email address is connected to your blogger profile and set to 'show email' or leave me your email address in the comment....I can only search so much before I realise I have no way of contacting you to send you the info!!

    1. Hi Amanda, do you have an email address I can contact you at please? your comment profile shows up as a 'noreplyblogger' to my inbox. I'm guessing somewhere there must be a tickbox where you chose not to share your email address? Anyway, give me a shout on pleasereleaseme(dot)letmesew(at)gmail.com

      Thanks

  9. Oh, I so wish I could do this! But, since I'm delivering baby #8 tomorrow, I know there's no way I'd get you your feedback in time. ;) How fun! (I LOVE bags! - Hubby might say I'm addicted. *grin*)
