because I've read and read and just can't wrap my brain around this...

Using a 'scrunchy' as an example - because it's something easily made right?  Anyone can look at it and go "Oh, just wrap some fabric around elastic".  So if the scrunchy itself is patented, does that mean I can't make fabric covered elastic and add doo-dads to it and personalize it and sell them?

I have an idea for something to make, but there is a product somewhat similar that is patented... how far from THAT do I need to be?  It's like the scrunchy example - completely basic but the 'basis' for the item (if that makes sense) that I would be taking to the next step.
