Default Would You Want Tutorial for This?

For Halloween this year I designed a peacock bustle tutu and it was a pretty big hit. It was pinned on pinterest several times and I received tons of orders for it.

I'm thinking about selling tutorials for some of my designs, but I haven't ever done it before and I don't know if anyone would be interested. I'd really appreciate some feedback on whether or not you think anyone would buy a tut for this tutu, and if so, what do you think it's worth?

It's pretty easy to do, but it does require sewing (just a straight line).

Thank you in advance for any advice!http://www.adulttutus.com/peacock-fe...n-costume.html

You'll never know until you try, right?

It's not my thing, but very pretty. I look at it two ways-- either try to be exclusive in making them or try to corner both markets by making them and showing others how to make them too. Either way, someone else will eventually figure out how to copy.

That is very pretty. I would sell the tutuorial. I mean eventually it will be copied as previously stated so you might as well get paid for teaching them how to make it. Do it quickly and get it out to the public before someone else does. In this line of work you have to stay ahead of the game. If you stop then they will catch up with you. Good luck to you.

Thank you! I really like designing and I've been toying with offering tutorials and perhaps easing out of the retail part of it eventually. As far as being copied, you're 100% correct, it's all part of being online. It doesn't bother me except when they use my photos to sell what they make. Thanks again!

Thank you! I tend to have way more ideas than time so I was thinking maybe I should take the time to do some tutorials so someone else could make all the things I don't have time to produce.

Yeah...that sux when that happens. All youcan do is make it harder for them to remove it. I dont know if this works...I need to try it: When you watermark you can do one letter at a time and then save the image layer. So when they try to remove it they have to keep going back to remove each letter individually. I read this on a photographer's personal fb page but have not looked into it.

It would be nice if something could be created to be placed in front of the product as your took pics.

Very pretty and quite unusual. I would agree with getting the best of both markets--sell them and teach them!

I don't think that will work because you can cover up the WM with something that you make as the top layer.

I think you should make the tutorial because it is so cute and I wouldn't mind buying it.
