Momo's Patterns: Selling Sewing Patterns

Hello everyone! Today I want to introduce you my new project: an Etsy store for selling sewing patterns. For now I have only 1/4 sized patterns, but I hope to include 1/8 patterns as well, and also patterns for cardboard furniture, and papercraft props.

Why did I do this? Musume & Okasan is my mom's Etsy, and we had to close it because of shipping issues; I never earned anything from that. Currently, I'm trying to raise some funds for my cat, so I needed some help. I couldn't take sewing commissions because I have the same restrictions: I can't ship things! So, after doing some brainstorming, I decided I could sell digital items: perfect for PDF patterns!

So, putting my knowledge to good use, here is Momo's Patterns. The name is well... MO was Musume & Okasan's initials, so... MOMO? You know, Musume (my nickname) means daughter and Okasan is my wrongly written version of mother in Japanese. I just wanted to reference the name, somehow.

Okay, so I hope this will be something interesting, and I hope to be adding new patterns soon! Everything comes with a tutorial, so I need to take time to prepare them. Some tutorials have many pics of them to guide the process.

  2. Great idea! I'm glad you were able to come up with a way to keep selling without having to ship overseas. Good luck with the shop. I'm going to take a look as soon as I finish here.
