Bit of a whinge and some clarification.

I was not sure whether to make this post but I wish to make my point.
My latest bunny pattern was purchased from Susan Hickmot at Mary Janes Tearoom on etsy. For Rachel I followed the pattern with different colours. I have never made any claims that it was my design.
Robbie is the same pattern but I changed the trousers and the intarsia is one I drew up myself. Also the shoes are different.

If you would like to adopt him for your self or a loved one, please contact me privately as I am not allowed to sell them on the internet, just locally. I do respect Susan on this and simply misunderstood her wishes. x

This statement is made because of some accusatory remarks, not by Susan from MJTR, but others.) It seems sad that I have to do this as I know some of my bag designs have been blatantly copied. Susan and I are on very good terms and she knows that I would never take this away from a very talented designer. Putting your own stamp on a good idea is what crafting and indeed designing is all about isn`t it.

I realise that this will probably provoke more remarks, but when I see other crafters passing blatant copies of others work deliberately as their own, I wanted you all to know that I am not that sort of person and would rather not make them than have that kind of reputation.

Whinge over, normal service resumed.


  1. Hi ,

    I have been an avid follower of your blog and i just love all your bunnies .
    I also have all three patterns by Susan and i agree that she is a talented designer and a great person .
    That being said . I think you are a great person too and i for one in any any shape or form did not for one second assume that you had copied her pattern .

    Keep up the good work and do what you enjoy .

  2. Thanks for your kind words of encouragement Rita. Its good to know that not everyone assumes badly before checking. Thanks for reading my little blog also. x

  3. Well I am sorry that this has all taken place. I am really glad to hear that the designer is ok with everything and that should be all that matters. Keep up the good work, you do such beautiful work!!!
