Pattern Pricing

I now operate a ‘pay what you can’ scale for my electronic/downloadable single patterns.  I usually charge £4 for these patterns and to encourage access for all crafters, these are now available on a scale of £2 - £6 and you chose what you can afford within that scale. 

Please note that this doesn’t apply to my hard copy patterns, which remain priced at £4 and come with an automatic digital download.

Pattern

Bushel Cushion makes use of just three of the twenty colours of Appledore by John Arbon Textiles. The Bushel Blanket uses all twenty, but the cushion is designed as a more subtle option that also offers a smaller project.

The cushion uses a two-row repeat through the three-colour sequence. The length of fabric is then folded to create an envelope. Finally, a simple double crochet border is added which joins the enveloped fabric to make the cushion cover.

The Appledore wool blend is soft yet crisp. Combined with the stitches, it offers a durable fabric and great stitch definition.

 

A matching Bushel Blanket pattern is also available.

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating

Postage and Packaging

You can read all about P&P here.

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
