Man, I feel a bit odd. About a week ago, my friend asked me to make her a fennec fox, and I said okay. So I set out to buy the yarn and make it. I was really, truly excited to do it--I think fennec foxes are absolutely ADORABLE. And I sketched out the design I was going to make and everything. I was ready to go for it.
Then yesterday, I was looking through the Completed Projects section of the crochet forums, and the first thing I see is, "I made a fennec fox!" I clicked on it, and it...was...SO good. If you haven't seen it yet, GO NOW. It's amazingly cute.
But since it's so well-made, I feel kinda bad making MY own fennec fox, because I'll feel like I'm stealing her idea or something..? It's not like people crochet fennec foxes every day, and it's just... an awful coincidence. AND I had bought a very, very similar yarn for mine. :/
I dunno guys, should I go for it? I'd really hate to be ragged on for copying an idea, although the design I sketched out looks nothing like the fox she made. But still! I'm not sure.
Here's my design:
