Hi, Could anyone help or direct me on how to create a PDF pattern to sell? I have a patent on a garment application for infants and children who use feeding tubes. I haven’t been able to find anyone to pick it up for licensing or an affordable manufacturer in this country. This I’ve done in memory of my infant grandson Jay who passed away in 2002. Because I’ve decided to get them out via pattern instructions for families to have custom made, I need to find out how to put it a proper format. Right now I’m test marketing the garment with the oncology group that cared for my grandson and will be making them custom for patients in her practice.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. If I can get this going perhaps Burda would pick it up and put it in their catalog. This will save so many little guys from going through re-insertion of their tubes when they are accidentally pulled out. Thank you, Kate

    The easy way (for a given value of ‘easy’) to make a PDF pattern is to draw it out on paper, divide the paper into A4-sized rectangles and scan it in one sheet at a time, then simply create a PDF consisting of these image files plus a key showing how to print them out and put them all back together again.

    The more professional-looking way is to ‘trace’ the images with computer-generated lines once you have scanned them in, so that you don’t just end up with lots of photos of your hand-sketched outlines.

    Exactly how you do either of the above will depend entirely on the software you have available on your computer/operating system and the level of technical knowledge you possess in how to use it!

    As for marketing a PDF pattern for commercial sale, I imagine that’s another matter….
