OK so I scoured the internet for patterns for Crocheted Mary Janes and to my surprise I found them. Well as you may or may not know I am trying to build my store on Etsy.com. But here is the problem, while the patterns are accessible to online crochet students like myself, they ARE NOT and I REPEAT, ARE NOT for sell, distribution, resale, etc. just take a look below at one disclaimer:
this free pattern is not for resale. All rights reserved. No part of the pattern may be reproduced in any form. The written instructions, photographs, design, and pattern are intended for personal, non-commercial use only i.e. you are not permitted to sell any items made using this pattern.
I clearly got the picture and CLEARLY knew I DID NOT want to be guilty of copyright infringement. So God bless all you wonderful crochet-ers out there and much success in your pattern making and free distribution.
So as I sat and pondered the idea I most avoided, creating my own pattern(s), I decided what the heck, and went for it! After seeing a few of the 'untouchable" pics of crocheted Mary Janes, I decided to do away with them all. I already knew how to crochet, single crochet, double crochet, create designs etc. And yes! An Epiphany! I would pull from my own bucket of talents and creative thinking and make an Adult Mary Jane Slipper Darnet! and so I did. So now since I have my own pattern, guess I too will join my crochet colleagues and copyright it as well (I laugh a bit)- Wha La, a crochet diva has been born.
Well I have more crochet adventures to discover - toodles for now.
