It's FALL!!! Three years ago I posted about a DIY reusable bit warmer that I had created. It's been one of my most viewed (and pinned) posts. Even eHow basically stole my tutorial for their site, so the first two google search hits for "DIY Bit Warmer" lead to this blog.
I've been spending the last year+ trying to improve the design and create a pattern to sell in my Etsy store. Last fall I made many samples and the final outcome was barn-tested all last winte. I couldn't be more pleased! The resulting pattern/tutorial is pretty swank, and ready to launch, BUT I need a tester. I need somebody with little to some sewing experience, preferably with a PC and average computer skills.
Here's the deal: I'm hoping to launch the pattern as a printable .pdf file, rather than a printed copy that I ship snail mail. Faster and cheaper for the purchaser. BUT the pattern needs to be printed the correct size - this is where I need a tester (or two). I need somebody to receive the pattern via email, then print it and see how successfully (or un-successfully) it comes out the right size. I need to make sure the file and printing instructions are clear enough for the average person.
I need this done ASAP, like THIS WEEKEND so I can launch next week! What's in it for you? Well, you'll get a free pattern for a sweet reusable and washable bit warmer that you will totally make and then wonder how you lived without it, and if that's not enticing enough, if you ACTUALLY MAKE the bit warmer - again, THIS WEEKEND and send me photos of it for use in the selling the pattern, I'll send you TWO decals of your choice from my store. Anything you want. I'll even do a silhouette of your horse's head with your horse's own markings. Yup. Anything.
I know you all are up for this. Who's in!?!?!
