How to Add & Sell Your Pattern on Craftsy

(This post contains affiliate links which means I will be compensated if you purchase after clicking these links.)

In addition to wonderful online courses and craft supplies, Craftsy also has an independent online pattern store that lets anyone upload and sell downloadable e-patterns with no fee!

How do you add a pattern to Craftsy and start your pattern store? It’s easy!

1. Make sure you have a Paypal account. All pattern transactions happen through Paypal, and Craftsy requires that you have a Student, Premier, or Business account in order to sell patterns.
2. Put your pattern in .pdf format. You can’t upload any patterns to the online pattern store unless they’re a .pdf file format, so if they’re currently saved as a Word doc, .jpg, or other file format, you must convert it to a .pdf before you upload it to Craftsy.
3. Include a photo. All patterns must have at least one photo to accompany them, but you can add up to five photos. Colorful, interesting photos tend to work the best for catching our members’ eyes!
4. Fill out the pattern description. We will ask you some basic questions around your pattern making it easier for Craftsy folk to find your pattern and know what your pattern is for. Make sure you have info about your pattern handy for this step.

A Midsummer Night's Dream Cookies

*This post contains affiliate links*

I have been a little MIA this past week on the blog because I have been busy making and decorating cookies for a charity auction.  Usually when I make cookies, I have very specific requests or I  make them for a certain Holiday.  This time, however, I had complete freedom to do whatever I wanted for this auction. 

I was stuck for almost 2 days on what kind of cookie design I wanted to do.  There were about a zillion different ideas floating around in my head.  I ended up making 4 sets of cookie designs including these cookies I named A Midsummer Night's Dream cookies.

Thank Goodness It's Thursday No. 19

Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week.
Once again, there were some awesome links last week, and it was really hard to pick just one feature.  Starting next week, since it has been so hard to pick just one, I'm going to go back to having 3 features each week.
This week's feature comes from Simply Fresh Dinners.  I LOVE halibut and it's always nice to come across a new recipe. 

Robyn, I invite you to grab a featured button.

And now it's your turn!

Deconstructed Sushi Bowl

*This post contains affiliate links.*
Earlier I was craving sushi like crazy.  But, I didn't feel like going out to eat and I also didn't feel like going through the trouble of making sushi rolls at home.  I thought if I threw all of the ingredients in a bowl, I could get the same taste, even if not the same experience.  This deconstructed sushi bowl was so perfect, I ended up making a second batch for dinner and everyone loved it.
