Found a great Etsy shop!

For those of you that are interested in knitting toys and their clothes, i have found a great shop on Etsy called Fuzzy Mitten and the woman who runs it designs and sells the patterns for making toys. What is even better is that she doesn't mind if you want to sell the toys you make, once you have the pattern it is up to you what you do with them. As long as you don't call it a 'Fuzzy Mitten bear' for example in the description (as Fuzzy Mitten is a trademark) she really doesn't mind! She would quite like it if it mentions you have made it from an original Fuzzt Mitten™ pattern.

That was great for me as I have been trying to design my own toys to sell but am not having much luck. i find it easier to adapt patterns for clothes etc. rather than designing my own toys. You should see my attempt at a rabbit - not what I hoped for, but leah liked it nonetheless!!

So I may try to get something sold in Etsy, just watch this spac

Thats a gorgeous shop I wish they were actual toys to buy :). Your aloud to use images off of Etsy just as long as you say where they have come from :).

Before you set up shop make sure you read the forum first as it gives you so many ideas and you find out exactly what it means to have a shop. I jumped in head first with mine.
