Have You Heard of Craftsy?

Last week as I was lurking on the Etsy forums, I discovered a really interesting post. Someone mentioned Craftsy, a site where viewers can sign up for online crafting workshops and online classes, had just opened a new section called patterns where anyone can post their craft patterns for sale.

What I find so exciting about this is that Craftsy hosts your pattern for FREE which means you download the pattern on the site and when someone purchases it, Craftsy will send the pdf pattern to the customer for you. So essentially once you post your pattern, all of the work is done for you.
I came up with a pattern for Craftsy last week and finally posted it last night. The image came from an antique Valentine's Day card. I enjoyed coming up with the embroidery pattern so much that I think I will do a few more! You can check out my pattern and Craftsy's pattern section here.

Super-cute pattern! I don't do embroidery but I would love to have her in my kitchen. I am sure that will sell like hotcakes!

oh.my.goodness. This pattern is just simply darling!! =) I also recently learned of Craftsy---think I heard about from Amy over at Mod Podge Rocks (blog). I haven't really checked it out too much---really just briefly looked it over and saved the link (so far). But, if your pattern is any kind of example of the cute things over there, I'm on my way =)
