Tips on becoming a published crafter - Part 2
Art in the Professions
Part Two: Getting Your Name, and Project, in Print
Congratulations! Your design concept has been accepted for publication! Now, let's assemble all the things your editor is going to need in order to secure your spot in an upcoming issue.
First you will need to familiarize yourself with their formatting and write or draw your patterns or charts in the manner the editors prefer.
For crafts like knitting or crochet, this may be as simple as carefully studying the published patterns in that magazine and writing your pattern in the same format. For other crafts, like quilting, sewing or woodworking, you may be required to provide pattern pieces drawn to scale.
Make sure all the pieces are drawn to the same scale proportionally, and make sure they are cleanly drawn and easy to read.
If you can, draw them in a graphics program like Photoshop and submit a clear PDF, GIF, or whatever format the publication prefers.
