Hi all- I have been making handbags and a million other things for a forever but have been selling on etsy for a while now too..I just made/designed a awesome bag that I love -for myself finally ( i make them for me and then i wind up listing them instead - ..there is so much at etsy i don't really have time to look at everything of course but I did go and check out some bags and noticed that there a quite a few - that look like the one i just made....actually after looking a while, they all seem to look alike (maybe I am just getting tired now!) anyway- its not really an original design i suppose since there are others... should I be worried about someone saying I am copying a design or am I being paranoid? thanks for any advice!
