Are you an individual crafter/sewer who is interested in selling the items you make from my patterns? You are in the right place! Thanks so much for your support and enthusiasm! Please read the guidelines below. (Or perhaps you own a quilt/fabric shop and are interested in conducting classes or selling kits to complement my patterns?)

If you are a home sewer and have a cottage business personally making things with your own little hands and selling them to your friends, in a craft booth or personal online shop (read: no mass production), you can purchase my patterns for that purpose, with my blessing. Go forth and make it a success! Make as many as you are personally capable of. Sew for your friends. Sew for your shop. Sew for craft fairs and bazaars. Sew up a storm!

Doing so means you agree to the following terms:
  • A reminder that the copyright on my patterns still stands: That is, you may not copy, resell, share, distribute or publish (online or otherwise) any portion of any of my patterns without prior permission from me. Period. Basically anything that involves sharing any part of my patterns with anyone else is a no-no.
  • Each sewer must purchase a pattern for themselves. If you have a friend who is interested in partnering up with you, or you are hosting a craft party, please refer each of them to my blog or shop to purchase their own pattern. mmmcrafts.etsy.com Thank you! (Exceptions may be made in the case of charitable sewing, just be sure to check with me first! Contact me via my Facebook page, IG or with a message on Etsy.)
  • Production is limited. To honor the 'no mass production' spirit, please limit your active listings (or display in your booth) no more than twenty MmmCrafts items at a time. This means a total of twenty of any pattern combination, for instance:
    8 Mikey Monkeys + 12 individual Christmas ornaments = limit of 20.
    If you are selling something as a set under one listing (like Christmas ornaments) that would count as one item.
  • Include credit where it's due. Please list a credit for the pattern on each listing or on each hang tag for the item: Pattern by Larissa Holland, mmmcrafts.blogspot.com 
  • Minor derivatives are OK, but even if you make changes in the way a pattern is made, please still give a credit to me for the pattern, along with a note that it is a variation.
  • PLEASE NOTE that it is really really really NOT OK to use any of my photos, images, logos, badges, or graphics to promote your listings, site, booth, signs, flyers, tags, headers, etc... Don't do it! Those images are copyrighted. Please use your own photos of your lovingly made items to promote your listings. 

You might be saying to yourself:

"I want to post lovely shots of my WIPs on my social media to generate interest in what I'm making or selling." That's a great idea! Please keep in mind my copyright, and refrain from posting photos that include my pattern sheets.

"Hey, can I sew these for charity drives?" What a blessing! Of course, if you are interested in gifting items and not selling them, all my patterns are still unlimited for personal uses like gifts and charity drives. Just like always!

"What about the free sewing patterns like Molly Monkey and the tooth pillow?" You can make and sell from those patterns also under the conditions listed above.

"Is there a way I can let MmmCrafts fans know about my shop?" Judging from the number of requests I get, there are a lot of readers out there who don't have the time or inclination to sew for themselves and they would appreciate knowing where to find your MmmCrafts handmade items. Let's get you two together! Send me a link to your shop (contact me via FB, IG, or Etsy) so I can place it on the Mmmakers page that is listed on the nav bar above ^ so folks will know where to find you and buy your MmmCrafts stuff.

*Please note: My cottage industry policies apply to my sewing patterns only. All of my paper patterns and tutorials that are on the blog are for personal use only! Thanks!
