Firstly, after a couple of months of anxiously waiting, my eldest son has been offered a place in his preferred university and at the course he really wanted. The news came as a great sigh of relief. The university, apart from being a reputable one, is just a 30-minute train ride from our home, making commuting super convenient. I was truly happy for my son! He is turning 18 in a few days, a milestone in itself, and this blessing is certainly a huge icing on his cake. Yay, we now have an Accountant in the making!
During the day too, I was in the mood to sew another cosmetic bag. Since I rarely get the urge (and the time) to sew these days, I really had to take advantage of the opportunity. I also had that strong feeling that I could "perfect" this pattern after a third attempt so I took out our camera and decided to take photos along the way.
And I was right! The bag turned out beautifully. The pattern seemed flawless. I was so satisfied with my sewing...and that doesn't happen very often!
Anyway, you know what comes with a pattern...the instructions, of course! I fixed up all my photos, typed up everything, read, reread and edited, then finally printed the whole thing as a PDF. Even I am surprised to have come up with a new eBook in such a short time.
Before I release the eBook, however, I do want the pattern tested. I had some difficulty constructing my sentences so I want to make sure my instructions are ultra clear.
Do you want to be a pattern tester?
To be considered, you must have some experience in sewing, particularly in installing zippers, bias binding, and sewing around curves. You must also commit to:
1. Finish the bag within a week after I email the PDF to you. (It only takes a couple of hours to make this from start to finish!)
2. Blog about the pattern if you have a blog then email me the link so I can post it here; or if you don't have a blog, send me a write-up with photos of your bag so I can share it here too.
