I have received my latest prototype with comments from the manufacturer that my pattern is wrong. They also informed me that they cannot use one of the fabrics that I have chosen (my favorite one) because it is too stiff and their machines cannot do tight curves. This is another pattern issue. So I have created a new pattern. This one is much more rounded and I think it will work.
During all of my painful waiting around this summer (seems like all I have done this year is wait around), I have also created another product. It is kind of like a companion product, and will hopefully be much easier to manufacture.
By the way, the missing fabric showed up in the package the manufacturer sent me, so now I have more fabric than I could possibly need.
All I have to do now is package everything up and send it to the manufacturer and this show will be on the road again!
