Saying Bye-bye – 15” CPK baby girl :pinterest

 

 

My two little ones are going to a new home and a new mommy so I wanted to make them special outfits for their trip. I'm not sure I can give up designing for CPK's as they are just so adorable but we shall see what we shall see. And may God bless their new home. :ghug

Trim rows. Work a sc in ea stitch with 3 sc in the middle of each 3 sc/3dc group. Work one row of pink, deep pink and black. You can work a picot for effect on the black trim row. To keep it simple, I did a sc/ch3/sc in the increase sts. Break off after the pinks and tidy all ends but DNBO with black.

…with black, work up left back edge in sc, work [ch 3/ sc in next] around neck edge, work down right back edge in sc working button loops if you want them.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

 

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

 

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

Those are adorable. I can see where it would be hard to adopt them out.
