50s patterns

2

I wanted for a long time to make some cute pattern to use on my tumblr, and since I had a little problem with my old theme and had to change it, I had the perfect excuse to do this!!! 

Have a cute YOI pattern!!! You’re free to use it in your tumblr too or whenever you want, just don’t erase my signature (And if you want to give credits to me I will be even more happy, it’s not necessary tho)!

(You may want to reduze the image before using it, since I drew it too big and didn’t notice it lmao Sorry, it’s my first try at patterns)

Commission me!

Helping a friend-- 50% off patterns through Sunday 3/19!

Use the coupon code “LUNARBUTTS” at my Etsy store to get 50% off of your total purchase! All money from sales made during this period are going toward a friend of mine to help her with paying bills (as she’s currently stuck with a deadbeat of a roommate– only for a bit longer, at least, but she needs some assistance right now).

Featured in the store are all kinds of geeky cross-stitch patterns– including the latest, my Mass Effect Sampler! Andromeda’s coming out in a week so get into the spirit with this pattern based on the original Mass Effect trilogy!

Also available are various Overwatch character icon patterns created to be ornaments (but could work for anything you wish), as well as this pattern of the House Fortemps shield from Final Fantasy XIV!

Any purchases during this time, even just one small ornament, can help my pal out, so feel free to go check things out and use the coupon code “LUNARBUTTS” at checkout for your 50% off!

At what point does it cease to be transformative work and just become your own?

I’ve been making plushies (well not right now because SICK and there are concerns that I would either burn myself with an iron or stab myself a lot) and I started with some patterns as a jumping off point.  In some cases there are patterns by multiple designers/sellers sort of frankenstein’d together with adjustments and stuff by me.  But I have MORE IDEAS.

Most of the pattern designers want credit along the lines of “Made using a pattern by Name Here” which seems fair.   Even if you modify it, which I guess then would be “Made Using A MODIFIED VERSION of a pattern by Name Here”.

If one is using only 50% of the original pattern, credit still seems totally reasonable.

But what about if it’s only 25%?  What about only 10%?  What if you altered every single piece in some way?

At what point does it become your own?
