    that cross over pattern is not an orginal but is a pattern that I believe Simpilicity sells, or maybe it’s McCall’s, I get upset when something that has been around for awhile is called an original by someone else, even if you just cahnge it just a tad, does that really make it an original piece of work? I think we crafter’s need to be more careful as to what we call our orginal Pattern, and give credit where credit is due. Sorry but this is how I feel.

    Dear Iris.
    I certainly get what you mean there.

    I did draft this pattern myself and Used a basic block to do so. I didn’t ‘rip’ it off any one. It is a classic design and made designers have designed something similar. Just as a t-shirt is a t-shirt and many different designers have drafted the pattern for it. I have just drafted my version od a classic.
    I’m sorry you feel I have ripped someone off. I don’t believe I have. If you would like I’m happy to send you photos of the basic block I used and the first rough drafts I made.

    But really I have done nothing immoral or wrong.

    Dear Iris.
    Please visit my blog for an explanation of how I draft my designs..
    I hope this clears up your assumption that I just change a commercial pattern and cal it my own.

    Tracey is one of the most original people going around and the fact she has the skill to be able to draft a very simple pattern such as the one provided here for free is a testament to her ability. Check out her blog and see just how skilled she is. Thanks Tracey – your workl is appreciated :)
