BHP023: Mix, Match and Re-Purpose Patterns to Save Time

crochet podcast

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

I’m not sure why I didn’t think of re-purposing bits and pieces of my previously written patterns to create fresh new designs sooner. I always feel like there is not enough time in the day to meet all of my responsibilities. It wasn’t until I connected with, Sarah, from Repeat Crafter Me, that I had that “ah-ha” moment.  This new approach could be a game changer!

If you’re a designer and you aren’t already doing this, Sarah is going to blow your mind. Not only that, she will prove to you that you don’t need special permission to pull from your archives of patterns to turn a previously written pattern into something completely different. As a designer myself, I felt like I had to create something brand new every single time. This is not the case!

If you’re a maker or hobbiest, think of how much time you’ll save by using this creative approach. You’ll be more efficient in making gifts for the growing list or you’ll be able to save time creating a market inventory for yourself.

Today’s Guest

This week I had the pleasure of connecting with, Sarah, from Repeat Crafter Me, a fun-loving, upbeat soul who is just as passionate about yarn as you and I. Sarah has been releasing at least one new pattern a week for as long as I can remember and that put her in the rockstar category for me. Well, Sarah is still a rockstar but the secret to her productivity wasn’t super hero. She did, however, share her productivity secret with us and it’s something that will rock your socks off.
