Totally love this! It's such a unique pattern, you did an amazing job replicating flight. Love her expression especially. Also, ugh, that person down there in the comments disgusts me. I can't stand idiots. I can't even begin to fathom how much effort goes into these plushies. I'm an aspiring plush maker myself, so seeing stupid comments like that annoys me. Keep up the great work. :)

I just saw that person who asked if you gave your patterns out for free and then called you selfish because you didn't an I am flabbergasted.

I don't think enough people take the time to truly appreciate the amount of effort that goes into any plush.

She is so, so beautifully done. I love her design and colours. And her expression is amazing. And I bet you've improved so much from making her all the way back then, wow:D

Really REALLY REALLY amazing! May I ask though why you don't give others a pattern? What if they don't sell them, maybe they just want to make one for themselves. Seems a bit selfish, but oh well...Nice work. :I

because i put hours of work into it and it's not fair to me to work for free. and you can't trust people to not sell things made from your pattern

I suppose your right, but could you at least be a bit nicer about it? I mean, instead of whining about how "its not fair" for you to "work" for free, which, you obviously did this on your own time anyways, you might as well just give out the pattern even for a fee. I know you say you never will, but I'm trying to make a point here. BE GENERALLY NICE. xD

You called her selfish and she's the one not being nice?

She sells her plushies. That makes designing the pattern for them work in every sense of the word. She was not whining at all. Asking someone to do hours of work for you for free is ridiculous and is not fair to the artist at all. That's not whining. It's a fact.

No, because YOU were the one whining that i'm being "selfish" about not working for free. YOU were the one expecting a handout from my hard work. It's rude to come along and tell people that you are being selfish for keeping your pattern. Go ask almost any pony plush maker that didn't design a free pattern or one they sell (and most times, that pattern is different than the one they use every day to make their own plush) and see what they say. I guarantee they will tell you the same exact thing.

Yes? Well that is because your all mean artsy people who don't know how the real world works. I'm sorry, but you can't say you are "working" for free if its not working, your just doing it in your spare time. Again, you could at least be a little nicer about it. If I had your skill, I would have people pay for the pattern or just plain give it to them. Maybe I'm just really nice, but its not like your going to sell it anyways. :/

Well then there is a reason you DON'T have her skill then. If everyone got handouts for something SHE worked hours on, it's fine if she tells you she doesn't want to give it to you.


And you telling her that she's selfish and rude, telling her to be "nicer maybe" is EXTREMELY inconciderate.
Maybe you should take some of your own advice.

So are you saying that art/design is not a valid profession and shouldn't be considered "work?" What do you define as "work?" Because I'll tell you what not everyone can draft a beautiful pattern, and even with a pattern not everyone can dedicate the time and energy it takes to become a skilled seamstress. Isn't that definition of work? And are you saying that because this is something she enjoys doing that she isn't within her right to ask for compensation for her work? Or deny people rights to her pattern that she slaved away on? It would be like me as a professional graphic designer giving away all my native files to someone who didn't pay me. It's absolutely ridiculous! And she was not rude to you, she was matter of fact if anything.

I didn't say the pattern needed to be free, and it isn't a job no matter how you look at it. I wasn't being ridiculous or rude, but sorry if it seemed that way. So... In short, no. Its not a valid profession unless somebody pays you to do it. Need I be any clearer?

Not a VALID PROFESSION? c:

Wow, really that is hilarious! Do you do that to everyone including other lawyers, artists, doctors, designers alike, and tell them all that they are working hard for is not a profession? She gets paid to this. THis is her work.

People pay her to make plushies. It's a job. Even if she weren't getting paid and was just doing this for herself it still takes many hours or work to draft a pattern and neither she nor any other artists should feel obligated to just give that time away. Artists who do not sell their work are still working for themselves and for their own enjoyment, not to give handouts to rude and people with a huge sense of entitlement.

eebharas Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Student Artisan Crafter
Your reasons for it not being a valid profession seem to be limited to the fact that she is not employed by someone other than herself. This is the same for business owners, but they have jobs. I know you seem to be taking speaking matter-of-factly as being rude, but that is not the case. You, however, ARE being rude by suggesting that it is mean to not give away hours and days and weeks of work for free. And yes, it is work.

She is actually a nice person, for the record. If someone walked into your house and asked to take your tv, would you just give it to them because they asked, and because they don't have a tv? Maybe they even have a tv, but they want a nicer one. (Such is the case with patterns. There are free ones out there, just none as nice as the ones artists use for their own work.) No, you wouldn't. TV's cost money, and it takes time to make money, and it doesn't seem fair that they should have your tv that you paid for without putting in the time to receive it, and furthermore, you'd be out a tv. (In this instance I'm pointing out that if everyone had access to her pattern, then very few people would buy the ponies she makes with it.) It wouldn't be unkind of you to deny this person the tv, as it belongs to you. It was rude for them to ask for something that they do not require to live for free.

I hope this makes sense. Because yes, they are very similar. She has a talent, and it is not her obligation to give away the product of that talent. Not doing so does not make her mean. Calling her rude and mean for not giving it to you DOES mean you're being rude and ridiculous. Please try to think things through more logically before insulting artists.

That's funny because people do pay her to make plushies. So yes I would say by your own definition it is a valid profession. And actually, you can major in "toy design" at universities now. So, I think by those accounts it's definitely a job. If that's how she makes her money, how can you say it's not? Either way, since she made it, it's her choice whether she shares it or keeps it to herself. That's her right.

"mean artsy people" lol. being envious of another person's ability to pattern isn't a reason to call them selfish and say they should give handouts. so the real world means that people should just give everything out for free because someone wants it? that's an interesting "real world" you live in. never heard of something like that

Now your just resorting to petty insults. Of course I am envious of your skill, anyone would be. But that isn't the point. What I mean by the "real world" thing was that, for example, if you were to work at, say Mcdonalds? Well, I don't know. Anyways, if you were to work at McDonalds, would they give you a raise because you think you make sandwiches really well? Or because you want to pay your bills? NO. Find another job.

Honey, if you don't like where the conversation is going, don't comment at all! It's apparent you are just a rude jealous person looking for a free pattern from someone who spent hours making their own.

Go do your own work dearie. ;)

Your analogy makes no sense. If you want to connect it to the "real world" and use a restaurant for an example what you are asking is more akin to going in to an Italian place that makes super amazing marinara sauce with their own special recipe and then expecting them to give you that recipe just because you want to make that sauce for yourself at home. Go and try doing that. Tell me what they say.
