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.
