I've been working on several projects lately.
Trying to make some nice knitted and crochet goodies
and accessories without patterns.
Designing is a big word, but I want to make it from me.
I made some sketches of cuffs and bracelets
that popped in my head.
After I took a better look on Etsy to see
what was on, it was very difficult to be original.
And I wanted something made by me,
but with a craft like knitting and crochet it´s
almost impossible to be one of a kind ;)
I don´t want to copy anyone,
but if I take a look at my sketches,
there somewhat the same as already
made by different persons.
A bit of a dilemma for me, what to do?
As my dad would say,
there is noting new under the sun.
Maybe I should stick with that and go
with what my I thought was nice to see and do.
I suppose there is a little line between unique,
original and copying something that almost looks alike.
Well anyway here are some pictures.
This is a modified pattern, made it for myself.
I found the pattern on www.freubelweb.com
This is a bracelet I thought looked nice with the necklace,
I just made it without a pattern.
This is a cuff in progress.
Finished lacy, ruffled cuff, designed by me, for sale :))
Here is the thing.
The purple bracelets looks a bit like the bracelet
a blogfriend (ROEST) made and sells.
I saw that after I made it, and post a picture from it. (oops)
I send here a email about it,
and it turned out she uses other stitches and materials.
She has no problem with it if I would sell it,
if I just don't use the same as she does.
Now comes my conscience, should I do it or not,
probably I'm gonna modify it,
to make my conscience silence.
But I'm really happy with my sketches,
and I'm gonna post pictures after I finished somewhat of them :)
Have a lovely day!
