Back in the late 90's, I occasionally amused myself by scanning pattern catalog drawings and changing them into paper dolls. I shared those dolls with friends in a paper doll group. Then around 2007, I posted several of those sets here at Dakota Dreams, including some sets made from Simplicity's Daisy Kingdom fabric and pattern designs. I did not ask for permission to use these drawings in any way, much less to alter them, or to publish them on my blog.
Yesterday, Maggie Raguse, the artist who drew those many outfits, contacted me and asked that I remove those files from my blog. I have done so, and I am so very sorry that in posting the dolls, anyone, anywhere may have thought that I was declaring myself the originator of those adorable drawings.
I am so sorry, Ms. Raguse. It was an incredible lapse in common sense, especially given that I stress copyright infringement in all of my talks on knitwear design.
I apologize to my readers as well.
If you have linked to, or reposted, any of those scans anywhere, or pinned them on Pinterest, please honor Ms. Raguse's entirely reasonable request to remove those files.
Thank you, and again, I'm sorry.
