Selling Your Product - My Patterns

The question that I get asked the most often is, "What makes Linda Walsh Originals Doll Patterns So Wonderful?" So I thought I'd try to explain that to you with some illustrations and then you could decide for yourselves.

For those of you unfamiliar with our doll patterns and craft patterns I thought that a good way to answer this would be to show you an example of some of the contents of our patterns. Our doll patterns and craft patterns were designed to make it easy to follow sewing the doll from beginning to end whether you are a beginner crafter and/or sewer or an experienced crafter and/or seamstress.

The front cover includes a digital picture of the doll, the Pattern #, doll size, doll’s name, and doll description.

The back page lists all of the supplies needed to make the doll, including where each of the supplies is used within the pattern (listed in the parenthesis). It also includes our company information, copyrights, and legal information concerning the use of our pattern.

The instruction sheet lists in detail the sewing instructions, additional pieces to be cut, and the instructions for putting the doll together from start to finish. The instruction sheets follow the diagrams from beginning to end and include many references to the diagrams pages. The instruction sheet also references each pattern piece by its name and each pattern piece edge by its label.

The diagrams pages are hand drawn picture examples of putting the doll together from start to finish and show you how the doll should look step by step. They follow the instruction sheets from beginning to end.

The pattern sheets are all full size page sheets. All of the pattern pieces are named and indicate the number of pieces to cut. The edges of all the pattern pieces are labeled as to edge placement and what sewing is to be done with that edge. If the edge is to be sewn to another pattern piece then the edge contains the name of that specific pattern piece. The fold lines, sew lines, and cutting lines are all indicated as well.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced crafter and/or sewer you should be able to easily follow our pattern directions for making the doll. If you like to sew using written instructions then just follow the sewing instruction sheets from start to finish. If you like to sew using pictures just follow the pictures outlined in our Diagrams Sheet from the first picture straight thru to the last picture. If you like a challenge and like to just put the doll together from the pattern pieces you can do that as well.

So now, hopefully, you have a good idea as to why our doll patterns are so wonderful. They can be used by beginners, intermediate crafters and/or sewers, and the more advanced or experienced seamstress or crafter.

Now, I have a question for you. Why not try one yourself? Come on. You know you want to. And, when you do please send us an email and let us know how you liked our pattern. We'd love to hear from you. Better yet, send us a picture and we'll post it on our Linda's Blog. Happy sewing.
