Copyright??? Can I Sell bags I make from your Sew Spoiled Patterns?
Have you ever bought a pattern and as soon as you make one for yourself everyone you know wants one too?? Then you start to make more but you can't stop! The pattern is so much fun you want to make it all of the time? This is the moment you realize I could sell these and it would be a way to make a little extra money for my family. And who could not use a little extra cash in this day and age:)
All of this to say...
I am changing my Copyright!!!!
Sew Spoiled patterns content within the tutorial is copyrighted and can not be reproduced electronically or copied and distributed. However the finished product that you as a independent Home Seamstress produces can be sold in your shop, provided the pattern was purchased from an authorized dealer and you state in the description, "This is an original design by Leah Williams from her Sew Spoiled ________ pattern." Many shops that have asked for permission and are already doing this. Also many esty shops have linked my Sew Spoiled shop at Etsy, which I really appreciate too! All items for sale must be handmade by you. Contracting with others to mass produce the designs is expressly prohibited.
Finally, I am in the process of making a Ready Made link page on my www.sewspoiled.net site of online shops who are making finished products of Sew Spoiled designs. Please let me know if you are interested in this, it is a lot of work and I want to make sure it is something that would be useful:)
Enjoy your weekend and keep sewing!!!
