I wanted to announce these at the beginning of the month, but for some reason no one believes anything when you post it on April 1st haha 🙂
Remember Pattern Subscriptions? I’ve offered them in a couple of different sizes before, but for a while I’ve only had them in PS size. Since the beginning of 2017 I’ve pretty consistently released PS, Medium Girl Fashion Doll, and 1/4 Slim MSD/16″ Fashion Doll patterns at a rate of at least 1x month, so I feel pretty confident in offering these sizes as subscriptions now.
BUT WAIT THERE’s MORE! You can also get a pattern subscription with mail service. It’s more expensive because I have to go to the shop and get them printed out and then mail them individually as they’re released, which costs about 5.50/pattern (more than the cost of the actual pattern!) but for people who like the new print service and want a surprise coming in the mail every month, this should be fun 🙂
And then there’s this:
As long as this doesn’t go horribly wrong, this will be a new monthly thing. I make a ton of doll clothes as I develop my patterns, and for the most part my dolls never use them again. So I figured, why not give them away?
Every pattern that has at least 1 week of release in a month (so April’s giveaway patterns will start with last week’s Pullip Pattern) will be included in that month. Then I do a drawing at the end of the month and the winner gets a free outfit mailed to her/him!
If you buy a pattern on the first day it’s released, you get 3 entries
If you buy a pattern within a week of it’s release, you get 2 entries
If you buy a pattern within that pattern’s giveaway month, you get 1 entry
If you are a pattern subscriber, you automatically get 3 entries for each pattern released in the size you are subscribed to!
Winners will pay for shipping. Partly because this could get expensive (esp. if there are a lot of international winners) and partly so that if someone doesn’t really want the outfit they won they will decline it and it will go to someone who does. If someone declines a pattern, I’ll give them a 10 entries to be used on any pattern/patterns of their choice in the next month’s drawing.
I hope this is going to be as much fun for all of you as I think it will be 🙂
