Additional Policies and FAQs
OPENING THE PDF FILE AND PRINTING
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view patterns.
If you don't have Acrobat Reader, you can download it for free at www.adobe.com.
My PDF Patterns have a wide margin, and can be printed on 8 ½” x 11” (A4) size paper.
Suggestion: Consider the environment by not printing out pages unneccesarily. You do not need to print out the entire pattern, print only the pattern sheets, and read the rest on your computer.
MAKING ITEMS FOR PERSONAL USE
You can make as many items as you like from my patterns to, keep for yourself, to give as gifts, or to donate to charity.
MAKING ITEMS TO SELL
After consideration, I have decided again to allow bear makers who purchase my patterns to sell items made from them, but with certain restrictions. Please read the conditions below, and adhere to them!
- Please keep a copy of your receipt as proof that you bought the pattern.
- There is no limit on the number of items you can make to sell from a pattern.
- Every item must be made entirely by the person who bought the pattern.
- No mass production.
- Each item must be individually labelled and credited to being made from a
Megan Wallace/Tin Soldiers pattern.
- If you are selling finished items online, your listing must include a link to the
pattern in my Etsy shop. If you don't know how to do this, contact me and I will
You may make certain alterations to my patterns when you use them.
Acceptable alterations are changing the style of accessories or type of fabric used, enlarging or reducing the size of the items made from the pattern.
Unacceptable changes are changing the pattern pieces, or mixing and matching pattern pieces from another design.
COPYING AND DISTRIBUTING THE PATTERN
I depend on pattern sales for an income! Please respect the hard work that I put into bringing you a well written and original pattern by supporting my shop.
- Please only print the pattern for your personal use, not to resell or to hand out.
- It is illegal under International copyright law, to sell or distribute any Tin Soldiers
pattern. This includes emailing, posting on websites and blogs, as well as
printing the pattern to hand out or sell.
- You may not use Tin Soldiers patterns to teach a workshop, or use the diagrams
and instructions in our patterns and tutorials to teach workshops.
