The tutorials shared on this site are not to be used for your own distribution. (Or to be used to help you make items, that you then sell.) These ideas and suggestions are for your own home use and to be shared as gifts…..not to be sold in your own shops and stores. I share a lot of stuff on here that is free, and I love sharing it. But just as a reminder, this isn’t free material for your own businesses.

But please use it to make your own stuff and for your friends/family. I love seeing what you have all made to gift to others.

It’s perfectly sweet.

And show me your creations…….I’ll get excited with you to see your finished product.

Now go……create.

Ashley Johnston is a professional DIY costume maker, sewist, crafter, and owner of Make It & Love It. She is a mom of 5 and a wife to a very patient (with my craft clutter) husband. In case you’re wondering, she always chooses crafting/sewing/designing over mopping/dusting/wiping base boards……but bathrooms/laundry/full bellies are always attended to. Whew!

    Are we allowed to make things from your tutorials to sell for charity? Ie: my parent's church is having a Christmas "shop" and the proceeds go to fund a missions trip to Africa.
    I don't have any specific items in mind (as I just discovered your blog), I was just curious in general.

    PS. Love your blog. :)

    I have to thank you for ALL of your inspiration. Watching your tutorials I have been able to come up with my very own patterns and projects after tackling your ideas as practice. From there I moved on to trying things out without actually knowing what Im doing, giving them away as gifts and even teaching other women how to craft. Its become a rather huge thing here for my friends and most of the Air Force spouses in our unit are meeting up with me or amongst themselves to create. Ive even started my own blog! Anyways, I heard youre in GA now and id love to know how close you are to us and I also wanted to thank you for all of your inspiration:)
