In my satchel, I carry around several printouts from the Vogue Patterns website. These printouts contain the pattern info from all the patterns I own, but which I don’t have fabric for yet. If I find myself in a fabric store, I whip out these printouts so I know what type of fabric I need, and how much of it.
But the printouts get grubby and ragged pretty quickly. And what if I’m in a fabric store, but don’t have my satchel? More than once I’ve wished that I had an app on my phone that could tell me what I needed to purchase*. I know there is an app for the iPhone but I have an Android. Every once in a while, I search the Android Market, wondering if someone has made one for the Android yet. No luck.
I do happen to know an Android developer, who has said it wouldn’t be that hard to make one, if he knew what was required**. Personally, I would want to put in pattern details – what fabric is needed and at what lengths, what notions to purchase, etc. I know the iPhone app also lets you put in details of your fabric stash, but I’m not sure that’s so important to me.
So I was wondering – if there was a sewing-related app for your phone, what would it do? Answers in the comments please!
* OK, yes, I could put the details in on a note app or something, but all that typing is tedious. I want something easier to use!
** but this is in no way a promise that he will create one – just setting expectations here.
