Testing unlined caps and sheer headbands

For summer I made some unlined hats from soft rayon. They are heading out to be tested by one of my Etsy customers. After I figure out any issues with them I will try to make more.

I also got some sheer knit for headbands and flowers. Very happy with how vibrant the sheer headbands look. I put the flowers on pinbacks which gives many more possibilities to mix and match hats, headbands and flowers. 1 hat with 3 headbands/flowers gives 7 different ways to wear.

Heading for my yearly checkup

Today is my check up with the oncologist. I am taking with me 16 headcoverings for the infusion room at RGH. I am always grateful that I am able to do this. It's because of them that my whole chemo headcovering crating got started. On my first chemo day I was able to pick out a hat made by a volounteer, it touched my heart deeply. And once I recovered from treatments I  wanted to pay it forward. To this date I have been able to donate more than 376 headcoverings.

Update 1/7/2018 All the comments from the end of september have gone into the spam folder. So I apologize for not responding to comments. 

It's taking too much time to send each person a pattern through the mail. So I will no longer respond to pattern requests.

I am working on tutorial on how to make your own scarf pattern.

I am also working on digitizing and copyrighting my patterns. However it is taking time and money so I can't promise when that will be all done. But at some point the patterns will be available to purchase again. I have also made some new improvements and upgrades to the patterns.

  1. the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own.
    synonyms:copying, infringement of copyright, piracytheft, stealing;
    "accusations of plagiarism"

My son is still taught in school that plagiarism is not nice or acceptable behavior.

What is your opinion? Let me know in the comments.

Have we really come this far that plagiarism is now called creativity???
Is plagiarism now an acceptable behavior?
Are "work at home moms" somehow immune to plagiarism and in their case is it called creativity?
Is plagiarism called "creativity" when someone is trying to feed their family?
Is it OK to plagiarize another work at home mom?
Is it acceptable to profit from plagiarism?
Do you support "work at home moms" who plagiarize?
Is it called slander and bullying if someone calls someone out on plagiarism?
Is it OK to plagiarize something if you paid for the item?

Patterns will no longer be available

You may direct all your concerns directly to

The hostile environment no longer allows me to share and to do nice things for others.
