How to submit a pattern to pattern-collections.com
Requests to have patterns added to the site are already coming in. To speed up the process, I will add some simple guidelines.
I want the site to look more or less uniform. All patterns will be posted in the same standard format – the pretty pink frame 🙂
To get the artwork into this frame, it is important that each step is separated.
DO NOT do this:
Steps must be separated like this:
On a submission sheet it would look like this:
- Any new step must be drawn in RED.
- All you need to do is add the name of the pattern and your name. You can send artwork and the monotangle as a separate image if the space is not enough. Do not forget to sign your artwork !!!
- Any blank piece of paper will do – however, I cannot accept grid paper. It looks UGLY ! Draw the grid yourself in pencil like you would when tangling the pattern. You don’t draw tangles on grid paper either, do you?
- I do have a template for grid based patterns – you can use that. You find it in the files section on our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/TangleItPatternClub/files/ or scroll to the end of the page and save the image.
Uploading your step-outs:
- The best way is to SCAN your paper at 300 dpi and send it to me by email (ina.somo @ gmail.com). Submitting it on Facebook will reduce the pixels down to 72dpi – producing lesser quality and grainy images.
- If you don’t have a scanner, then take a photo in daylight!
- And if all fails, contact me – we WILL get your pattern up! It may take time, but it will be awesome – guaranteed! I can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TangleItPatternClub
