OH WHAT FUN!!!!

My husband had gone to bed early one evening, so I tiptoe into our room and pull out this night shirt, I have not worn it since on island but in the dark, who cares. So the next morning.....this is what I saw......

Once again, the light bulb goes off.....and the thought just won't leave me....I really am a nag....that thought just kept nagging at me until I came up with this....


I still have to put the face on the house shoes and I am going to make the quilt bigger and put the wording on the sashing...we will see, still in the works....sooooooooooooooooooooo I have been trying to find this company so I can have rights to this pattern....I think it is so fun....but that copyright stops me from doing anything further with my idea.....so it will just hang on my wall....but this hanging suits me perfectly.....If anyone knows anything about copyrights and what I can do, please let me know!!!

Pretty cute, Barb! Are you really a grouch in the morning? I wake up cheerful and talkative, and I have to wait for hubby to get at least two cups of coffee in him before I can converse with him!

Shari said...

This is pretty cute. Try googling the name on the tag, or search google images (ugh!). Is there a (c) on the image anywhere? What about the store where you bought it? You are so prolific with all that you accomplish - can't believe you're not a morning person!

I don't have much of an idea, but I'm guessing unless they sold you the rights to it, you'd not be able to use it to sell anything with that picture on it. Now...as to whether or not they'd sell the rights to it AND how much they'd charge, that is a whole other story. Your work is SO cute, though! (If they were smart, they'd let you do it and work out a deal with you for a percentage of what you sell.)

Darling. I do hope that you get the rights.

That is so cute. It is so NOT me, I'm usually up around 4:30 or 5 each morning with a big ol' smile on my face...my son hated that LOL

No copyright help here but I love what you have been up to :)

Rumi said...

I'm a morning person so I usually look like that in the evenings LOL.

Gene Black said...

I am not a morning person either!
I can be awake and function..but don't ask me to talk and smile, I need coffee and TIME. I wake up slow!

Wow!! How fun, but I cannot help you one bit, so sorry, oh I hope you can figure it out!

Generally it is not the rights that you are purchasing. You generally are purchasing a license to be able to duplicate their design and resell it. Some places are fairly cheap with licensing fees others are outrageous! Some are so picky about the stipulations it just isn't worth it! But heaven for bid you take this design and use it without permission/licensing. That can get you into some SERIOUS money hassles, court troubles, etc.
Good luck with it--you've done awesome recreating the design.
