I wondered how Eve came to sell her patterns and she was kind enough to answer some questions and share a bit about her process.
"My patterns were a long time coming. I had many ask me over the years to sell my designs as patterns, but because they were only bits of paper drawn and cut from trial and error, that I thought only I could understand and be able to use, I didn't consider selling my patterns to be an option. I happened to meet Shari Fuller from Thimbles and Acorns though a purchase I made from her on Etsy. I told her I admired how she was able to develop her patterns into a sale-able product. That conversation resulted in a collaboration of my designs and her talent to develop these bits of paper I called my patterns into a quality, user friendly and marketable pattern. Ultimately my first ever KeeperDollyDuds Design Pattern for 18" Dolls was released on March 1st 2012."
"I can't say I have a favorite era. It seems when ideas run out for one era, I can change my focus to another era and fresh ideas pop into my head. This is how I keep myself inspired and prevent "designer's block" or boredom. "
