Pattern Testers Needed!

**ETA: The Leap Pad Tutorial is now published on my blog... for free! Thanks to everyone who volunteered or inquired about this pattern!


I've been working on releasing my very first pdf pattern and I'm asking for your help! I need volunteers to test out my pattern for this leap pad case. I made this one for AJ in January and I've put together some instructions and photos so that I can start selling the pattern in my shop.

Pattern Tester Requirements:
- Must know basic sewing skills
- Must know how to sew on a zipper
- Must take really good pictures!
- Must complete the case and send me pictures within two weeks after you have received the pattern
- I'd prefer my pattern testers to have a Leap Pad available for making sure it's a good size, etc. If you don't have kids that own a Leap Pad, you can still participate and adjust the measurements to fit other gadgets you might have on hand

Please help me out! I'd appreciate it so much!! Leave a comment or email me if you're interested and I'll be sending out copies of the pattern next week. If you leave a comment, make sure I can contact you!! Are you a no-reply blogger? Make sure that your e-mail address is accessible on your profile. Thank you in advance!

  7. Also, I am going to be ordering zippers on Zipit on Etsy in the next few days to replenish my stash. What size would I need for this project? I'd like to buy it in case you ask me to make the pattern. I wrote my own pdf pattern recently and sold quite a few copies in my Etsy store. It was fun to make and I had one person "test" the pattern and another look it over for glaring errors, but so far all the customers have been happy.

  14. Hi,
    I just bought a leap pad - would love to try to make one! I meet the requirements although it make take me awhile to get the zipper right but nothing like a deadline to make sure it is done. Would love a copy of your pattern to try.
