A New Start For My Business

Hi! I have some good news and bad news to share with you all. Let's start off with the bad news (although it might not be bad for everyone).

The bad (?) news

Unfortunately, I'm no longer selling video game themed plushies and patterns, because I've been strongly encouraged to sell my own crocheted/sewn characters.

This will be a better way to run my business, because I've recently seen a post about crochet and copyright. According to the post, making plushies based on an existing character could put my business at risk, due to copyright issues. Since then, I've been encouraging everyone to buy my products with my own art.

In fact, I've made an even bigger effort and done something pretty ambitious. I've decided to delist all of the video game themed plushies and patterns. This includes my only two plush patterns, as well. I was going to do this on Monday (13th May), but I thought I should do this now. The sooner, the better.

Look, I know this might be a shock, but it really is better for me and my business. The last thing I want to do is putting myself at risk, especially after hearing this information. Besides, I need to show off my creativity, so please consider buying my own characters! And if anyone harrasses me to put my old plushies/patterns back on my site, simple answer, no. I just can't do it.

On the other hand, I still do custom orders, so video game themed plushies may be only sold via this method. To learn more, please visit my FAQ page.

However, it's completely up to you, if you want to continue selling plushies based on existing characters. But for me, I just wanted to play it safe.

The good news

I've decided to run my business a different way. Instead of working on orders I receive (I still will, when I receive one), I'm going to create my stock for every month or so. That means I'll be making plushies ready made, so you may not have to wait a few weeks before your order's been dispatched! This job will be done during weekdays, and on weekends, I'll take breaks and focus on future projects.

New original characters are scheduled to be released on 20th May, and I'm also updating my amigurumi patterns of my original characters. So look forward to all of that!
