Craftsy is a wonderful online resource for those who like to or would like to learn to sew, knit, crochet, cake decorate, and more.  They offer a multitude of online courses and craft supplies.  But did you know that 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.

Selling patterns is a great way for you to make some extra money from your talent.  For more information on how to sell a pattern through Craftsy, or to get started, visit Craftsy.
