6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / faux leather vs vinyl on: November 25, 2008 09:14:53 AM
Hi all- question...

Is faux leather the same as vinyl? I saw a roll of faux leather in Jo anns and it felt almost like real leather- very soft- as opposed to vinyl which is harder..

thanks for any input..
I don't really care for vinyl bags but thought maybe the faux leather would be a nice subtitute - plus its animal friendly!...

10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / similar designs on: July 28, 2008 03:02:57 PM
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!
