Of course! In fact, we love seeing your creativity take flight with our patterns! It is inspiring!
Want to know what you can and can’t do? All of the questions you have regarding use are right here.
While you cannot sell or share the pdf pattern itself, you can sell (or share!) the finished goods that you make. In fact, we love it when small boutiques make things to sell using our patterns. We know there are a lot of options out there when it comes to sewing patterns, and it is an honor that you would want to put our designs in your store. While we in no way require credit back to us in your shop, we would love it if you shared photos of what you made in your favorite sewing group. Also, if your boutique features our designs, give us a shout out so we can also share the love (and maybe send some sales your way!)
Sharing copyrighted digital files is illegal. While this can be confusing to some seamstresses new to the pdf world, you have to keep in mind that a pdf pattern is a digital good. By sharing it, you are replicating a copyrighted item and giving it to another person. If it were a paper pattern, you would no longer have the original pattern becasue there is only the one copy that you purchased.
Also keep in mind that most pdf pattern makers are small businesses. I sell pdf sewing patterns as a way to feed my family. My sales directly puts food in my children’s bellies. With that being said, if you love BSD patterns, we would love it if you would tell everyone you know that has a passion about sewing so they can come to love our patterns too.
