Copyright and selling items
Selling items made with Studio Seren sewing patterns
Selling sewing patterns is how I support my family. A huge amount of time and energy goes into designing each sewing pattern. They are the accumulation of years of doll making experience. I love to share this with you and give you the opportunity to make money from items that you have made using my patterns. In return, I ask that you respect my work and observe the following terms and conditions.
- Items are not mass-produced in any way. They must be handmade by the individual who purchased the pattern
- Items are not sold in large numbers - no more than 100 dolls/items per year can be sold using each pattern
- Items must only be sold directly to customers. Items must not be sold wholesale to businesses
- Patterns are not adapted to make other animals to sell. For example, you can not buy the bunny pattern and adapt it to make a bear or create new animals to sell
- All website or Etsy listings include the following: ‘Made using a Studio Seren pattern www.studioseren.com'
- All photos or videos of the item shared on social media include the following text ‘Made using a Studio Seren pattern’ A link to my social media page or website should also be included. For example, on Instagram tag my page @studioserenpatterns
- As the maker of the item, you ensure that it complies with all relevant safety standards and legislation
- You may not sell dolls made with my sewing patterns if you also sell doll or stuffed animal sewing patterns
Using my sewing patterns to run workshops
I allow physical face-to-face workshops to be run in your local area using my sewing patterns if permission is requested first. All students must buy a copy of the sewing pattern in advance. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise. Online workshops are not permitted.

All elements of my sewing pattern and instructions are protected under British and European copyright law which applies internationally - this includes the pattern itself as well as the words, images and drawings in the instructions.
