Pattern work

Pattern creation is a lot more work than I remembered. Or maybe it's the whole digital thing that's frying my brain. I have a fencing jacket I created years ago where I spent hours drawing the pieces to get them free from ink blobs and mistakes, then I took them to a print shop where I had them scanned. Nothing went wrong when they were printed out. And I created an instruction document that I was told was very thorough.
The RealPuki patterns are feeling like more work than that was. I'm doing three sets and I have the instruction illustrations done, the pattern pieces drawn and tested several times. The written instructions for one set is done. I need to do the other two and a photo shoot for the sets to sell them. It's the frustration of getting my drawings onto the computer that's doing me in. I hope it turns out that they're really popular and they sell like the proverbial hotcakes!
