Alright so my wife has been trying to get me into sewing… I like fandom type of stuff so whereas she likes to make potholders, I’m pursuing making plushies of characters.
I found a really cool style online of a plushie someone made but they don’t sell the pattern for it and have mentioned that they don’t want other people having it cause they made it and want it to be theirs.
Determined, I looked at alot of images of their plushies and figured out how to make almost the exact same thing… I changed the length of arms and legs but the rest visually looks the same.
The thing is, is that even though it looks the same and there is no way to contact the original person any more… I have no way of knowing if what I came up with is the same as what they used.
So I thought about selling the pattern online or doing commissions of plushies in the future…
But would that be stealing?
