Hi everyone,

I'm going to be honest with you guys. I've been struggling to get these posts up on time due to an extremely demanding internship I've been doing this summer.

Then this past week I had several extremely devastating things happen to me and I just haven't been able to find joy in something I used to care so much about. I'm taking a break from the competition to focus on my mental health and spend time with my family and friends during this trying time for me. I appreciate all of the support you have all given me about the competition and I'm looking forward to returning when I'm in a better mental and physical state.

Again, thank you for all of your participation in this activity. It's been an honor watching you all submit your best work and show appreciation for each other's work. The monthly competition will return and I hope you can accept my apology :(


I do want to congratulate the winners from July! As always you guys knocked it out of the park and everyone deserved to win this one!

  1. /u/tiamatfire - The Solar System
  2. /u/Siyartemis - Carl Sagan Cosmos Tribute
  3. /u/emmian - Floral Death Star

Thank you everyone for participating and I'll catch you on the flip side <3

OK, my fifth time trying to upload, I still can't rotate the picture, hope I'm doing this right. Reddit Markup makes me stabby (so guess I should get back to sewing). Pattern is by StitchingwithZeal on Etsy . My boyfriend's sister & her new husband really liked it, though all i see are the mistakes. Now time to get back on the half-done projects i gave up on in middle school.

I see a lot a lot of patterns for sale at rather prominent shops of super heroes, television characters, movie stars, video games, etc. Is this legal, or are they just figuring nobody is going to sue them over a $5 pattern?

The argument I can think of for legality is that youโ€™re not actually selling the image. Youโ€™re selling detailed instructions on making a lot of little Xโ€™s that when put together will be the image. But I floated that idea at the legal advice sub, and they pretty much said โ€œuh, no.โ€

Anybody here have any insight on this?
