I am thrilled that you have found the pattern I created so useful, thank you for the feedback and I hope your children enjoy it as much as mine have. With regards to you using the pattern to sell, unfortunately I am not comfortable with this as I am planning on marketing this idea myself and would appreciate it if you didn't do the same. I am fine with you using my pattern to make for your personal use though.
Thanks so much for checking with me, I really appreciate it.
Hope to see you soon
As a previous poster suggested perhaps you could work together if you don't feel comfortable saying no.
aannaa that is an awesome letter, thanks so much
It has been in my mind as a marketing possibility and I've bought some fabric ready to start, to see how they go. I never thought of charging $25 for them, that seems pretty expensive to me.
It's a bag for an aluminium drink bottle that you hook over your shoulder (mine is really pretty, butterflies), I've googled it, and there isn't anything quite like the one I've made. I know it probably doesn't sound like much, but it really is pretty good. My drink bottle is a 750ml one, and doesn't fit in my handbag, and is a bit of a nuisance to cart around. The bag fits the bottle almost exactly, you can get to the spout bit without undressing it, and hooking it over your shoulder, it somehow doesn't seem as heavy. I take it everywhere now.
I don't know this woman particularly well (met her about 10 weeks ago probably). I appreciate that she asked, and I wonder if she will just do it anyway, I don't think I know her well enough yet to say.
Thanks for your thoughts
, it's helpful to get some other perspectives.
