wasp bag makers: i need your help!
11 March 2009
I get a real buzz* out of seeing all the different versions of my wasp bag pattern around the intertubes and flickr. It’s such a great feeling to have produced something that people can use, modify, and make their own, and there are so many talented sewers and colour-choosers out there.
But sometimes I get a bit worried when people mention that they found the pattern hard to follow. I’d like to revise the pattern to make it better and easier. Which is where you come in.
I’d like to invite everyone who’s made a version of the wasp bag to help contribute to a better wasp bag pattern. And I am offering two bribes: one is a chance to win the bag you see above, and the other is a place in the (soon to be constructed) wasp bag gallery on this site, including a picture of your bag and a link to your blog, if you have one.
If you’d like to take part, here are the questions I would like your feedback on:
- How easy to follow were the instructions for the wasp bag?
- If you found the instructions difficult, which parts in particular puzzled you? How did you solve the problem?
- What changes would you make to make it an easier project?
- Did you modify the pattern? if so, what did you do and why?
You can leave your answers in the comments below, or email them to machenmachen@(removebeforesending).gmail.com. If you’d like to be in the gallery, please email a photo and a link to your blog as well.
I will pick one winner at random for the bag, and the competition closes on 11 April 2009.
