Avid crocheter.
I do NOT sell my patterns. I have my reasons, so please please don't ask. I'm flattered, really, but I cannot sell my patterns at this time.
Please RESPECT your fellow artists by not saying things like "I could make this" or "Now I'll make this." It is rude, hurtful, and down right disrespectful.

Now onto something with a happier note!
I'm in my early 20s, I dropped out of college when I ran out of funds, I'm in between jobs (but constantly searching). My 'job' right now, is selling my crafts. So help a broke girl out? Buy my things or commission me~
I love to cosplay, mostly as Nami from One Piece. A dear friend has gotten me into fursuiting, and let me tell you, its AMAZING.
I don't draw anymore, so sorry to anyone who asks if I still do. My skills went downhill once I started crocheting.
...but apparently not.

When a submission says "Pattern (C) said artist" it should go without saying that the pattern was written by them and it would be best not to say on the picture "And now I shall make this." Its extremely rude to the artist who spent the time to write the pattern while making the item. Saying something like "Oh that's really cool, I think I'll try to make something similar," is far less distasteful and won't upset the artist as much. TAKE CARE HOW YOU SAY THINGS! We pattern writers don't sit around writing patterns just to have someone rip off our idea and make the EXACT same thing. I, for one, am not the type of person who will hunt down every item that resembles my creation and demand that you take it down and stop using whatever pattern it is that you are using. I know that some patterns are so simple that just about anyone else could write it too. But if you flat out say you are going to "make this" I WILL hunt you down and send you Cease and Desist letters. It is just as bad as using someone else's drawing/painting, that they have spent countless hours on, and claiming it as your own. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take that into consideration!

ALSO! Please do not ask or suggest that I sell my patterns. I am NOT in a place where I think I am up to that. I DO NOT SELL MY PATTERNS AT THIS MOMENT! I am flattered that y'all think I should and that y'all wish to make hats like mine. But right now, I do not feel they are anywhere good enough to sell. Please do not argue that you think they are. I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my patterns. I would also have to put in, like a contract, that anything made from my patterns can NOT be sold. And many, many people do not heed this. I would rather not deal with this sort of problem until I am in a better place.

Thank you for your time reading this. I do hope that someone, if just one person, actually takes this to heart.
