Now don’t panic! I’m still making plenty of free patterns for this website and posting those here.
But some of my older free patterns on ChellyWood.com are only available as a JPG image. My TPT Store offers an opportunity for me to convert those older JPG patterns to PDFs and offer, say, three patterns plus links to all the tutorial videos you’ll need to make them, for a small fee.
What would be a fair price for three dress patterns, like you see on the Cabbage Patch Kids dress pattern above?
Now when this Cabbage Patch Kids dress pattern was first published, back in 1984, it was worth $3.00 US, as you’ll see on the image below, but I bought it at a second hand store for almost the exact same price. So that’s an interesting scenario to think about!
But what I’m asking you to help me decide is a simple price value for…
Well, let’s say I have three princess-style Barbie dresses that I’ve designed. All three designs are currently only offered free at ChellyWood.com if you know how to manipulate a JPG image for printing.
For people who struggle with printing JPG images, I’d like to offer PDF versions of the pattern for a small fee. What would you charge for the PDF sewing patterns (plus links to all relevant tutorial videos) for making three different styles of princess dresses to fit an average Barbie?
This would be a PDF download from my Etsy store or my Teachers Pay Teachers store. What do you think would be a fair price?
Remember, the same patterns are also going to be available here, on ChellyWood.com, but only as a JPG image.
Please leave comments! I’m really searching for some ideas, and I hope you, my followers, can help me out! I want to be fair to my faithful followers, but converting those old patterns to PDFs takes a lot of time. So what would be a fair price for, say, three princess dresses to fit 11-inch fashion dolls?
All advice, thoughts, and ideas are welcome.
