Everything that is wrong with crafting. 

Well, I think everyone knows my opinion of of these kinds of shenanigans   I wonder how many people have cheap knock-offs of our original stuff hanging in their houses? Probably more than we care to know about. 
*ANGRY FACE*

I like it a lot more when they take the time to moan about having to work out the colours and zooming for pixels. Poor babes.

You know, I’d see it as a honor if someone took the time to stitch something from something I did. Or if they quoted me or anything. It’s a wonderful thing. It’s not like they’re going out and selling the design to everyone claiming it’s theirs, they just wanted it in their house and couldn’t afford the hefty price. I love that fact that someone is willing to take time out of their day to make something because they found it that inspiring. :)

Personally, I don’t mind. I don’t have a beef with this person. I think Jamie still sells my pattern in his store, but I don’t get anything from it, and if people ask I’m glad to just share my patterns with them. Once I make the first one I’m done with it unless someone specifically asks me to make another. But not everybody feels that way, which is why I think it is best to ask first. I always do it myself when using bits and pieces of other people’s designs in my own. 

I’ve only been doing this for about six months, and I already had someone do a very close version of one of my designs, with minimal changes. I put it out there on the internet, and it was a piece of fan art, so I don’t think I had a lot of right to be cranky. It mostly felt flattering—someone liked my stuff enough to re-make it!—but a link to my blog or an acknowledgment of my work would have been nice.
Mostly it was just very trippy to see someone else’s stitching of my MS Paint “handwriting”.

I don’t browse the internet enough to see if any of mine have been done without permission, though I’m sure some have. I’ve never actually had anyone ask my permission to use something, though presumably that’s because I have a big obvious shop. Saying that you took the design from someone else’s work but then not linking back to that person makes no sense though, no matter what the situation is. They’re not claiming credit, but at the same time they’re not really giving credit either, because people viewing the image don’t know where it came from.
