I’m new to Burda style and I love it. I would like to post some photos of my projects, however they are made from patterns from other companies. What are the rules for posting a project? Is it ok if I post the picture as long as I also note the pattern company and number, or is it only ok to post a picture if it is my own creation or from Burda?
Thank you so much. I can’t get enough of this website! I am constantly inspired!

    As far as I can see (newbie to) it seems to be fine to post other creations. Get going girl!

    Just add the company and pattern number. You are to be commended for giving credit where it is due. Thank you and welcome to BS from just one of the crowd. Cordially, Nehmah

    Yes you may post creations made by using other companies patterns. Just make sure, as Nehmah stated above, you give credit to the pattern company, web page, magazine or what ever media you’ve used. We look forward to seeing your creations! Happy sewing!

    All of the above is great advice :) I always think it’s best to give credit where credit is due, and if not sure, give credit anyway :) All I wanted to add to this is that another good reason to post your pattern information is because if other members love your creation and want to try the pattern they will ask you what pattern you used, if you post it from the start we can all benefit :) xx

    Burda patterns (and other patterns created by others than yourself) are not ok to post as your own creations… such as this one: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/bella-swan This one is even marked with burda copyright. Burdastyle, maybe you should add (unless you already have) a compulsory step where you assure that you have drawn the pattern yourself before you can upload patterns? It seems like quite a few people haven’t gotten this with copy-right… (MerBecky is not one of them though, great to check it out so carefully before posting! I don’t think you have to post details about the pattern-maker, though it’s always appreciated..!).

    i might be asking the obvious, but the only daft question is the one not asked – Patterns posted by members, should these be totally our own design, whether inspired by other patterns and bodged or our own imagination. i have noticed rather a lot of patterns from Modern Sewing posted recently, i know because i have made a couple of them, over the last year or so, it looks to me that the credit has been taken by the person posting them. My total aplolgies if i am wrong, but surely if everyone started to post free patterns from other sites we are going to be totally swamped. The site is great, but if these patterns are inapropriate it will start to annoy me.

      The only patterns that should be uploaded by members are the patterns that they have drawn up themselves. All patterns are basically inspired by other patterns/ideas! Hard to find anything that is truly original. There is nothing wrong with using inspiration from others to make your own pattern.
      I have a real problem with the patterns that are being uploaded lately. And an FYI, they are NOT Modern Sewings patterns! The patterns are the property of Lekala who has a website at http://www.leko-mail.net/index.html
      I have actually conversed with someone in their organization who knows about the patterns being posted at Modern and on here. They assured me that it has not been with their blessing….
      They have some truly inspiring patterns and you can download a sample size from all the styles!

      I’ve noticed that a member was posting the Lekala/Modern patterns too. If you want to share a free pattern that you’ve seen online it’s best to share the link in this discussion post here: http://www.burdastyle.com/discussions/project-chatter/topics/free-patterns don’t post it in patterns because it looks like you are claiming it as your own. From what I can see that member has been removed.

    my apologies but i have never heard of Lekala until today, i have only looked at modern sewing. thank you both for making things clearer in my mind about this, i am glad it has been sorted out. i will certainly have a look at the leko website, i love new patterns, it gives me inspiration and the inclination to get the machine out again, but unfortunately i dont have the pattern making skill to let anyone have my creations although i may post a couple of my recent projects and will give the credit where the credit is due to the pattern suppliers thanks again for the clarification
