Doll Design

Great work. Nice article.https://www.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=batch_download&send_id=817789614&email=7cff47bb7cdcb76fbfa15e66c81a1961 But it's really irritating to know that your ideas have been stole and used by people. The hat and the doll looks amazing. Keep posting your work.


Very sad, glad you're taking some action!


More disappointing than the gall of the person claiming this to be theirs - because some people are just idiots or will try to get away with anything. The fact that
a professionally published magazine
did not even notice the publishers marks?? Or that NO ONE on staff recognized the similarity to a VERY, VERY well known and design recognizable dollmaker that has been featured in their magazine, more than once?? Lost my respect for them.

This happened to me, too. I was young at the time, and didn't do anything about it. The editor of the magazine removed the seam allowances and said that they were "hers." At least the magazine is now defunct. G. P. (Teri) Jones


Like my husband said (when I told him what happened), it's like saying you wrote "War and Peace" because you changed the font.

Hang em high, Patti! I have used your patterns so much and I always give you credit. You deserve it! I have seen people put new patterns on websites and your pattern influence is very noticeable. I can't believe that they can claim it is their original pattern.

Patti, I just got finished looking at that issue and I saw the jester and I was thinking that it look like one of your patterns. Wow!!! some people have a lot of nerve. Go get them girl!!!!!!!!


Did they think you were born yesterday? There is no reason for people to do that sort of thing.

Patti, I am sad I can't come on the cruise with you. Hattie looks so cute!
Those silly people -- I mean, how hard would it have been for them to give credit to you for the design?!
luv, Jacquie


GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. NOBODY likes a THEIF, not even another theif. For someone to do this, it was truly stealing. This was so wrong.


How awful, that's so wrong! It especially annoys me as you are always so generous with sharing your expertise and patterns with people.

The hat on your latest doll is stunning :o)
