I made a couple changes to the design to fit what I wanted like adding the pockets in the…See More

My Expandable Handbag Pattern

I was given the challenge to make an expandable zippered handbag and have to admit I was a little intimidated to attempt it. I was going to just take a shortcut and find a great pattern online and guess what THERE WAS NONE TO BE FOUND!!!!I then knew I had to come up with my own design. I played with my graph papers and started…See More

Hi Shannon, Sorry it's taken me this long to respond. I haven't been back on here since I left you with that info. I purchased a book called " The Entrepreneur's Guide to Sewn Product Manufacturing" by Kathleen Fasanella a couple years ago and it has a lot of useful info in it about getting your idea and products to market. The info on the paupers copyright is in there as well. You should purchase and read this book before you let anyone else in on your idea!!
