    Barbe doll clothes, anything with professional sports logos from the licensed fabric that is sold.

    It is not legal to make things with licensed fabrics that you are planning to sell for a profit. You can make things, but you can not sell them. My sister found this out recently where she sells things. Her things were pulled from display, because it was an infringment of licensed fabrics sold for money.

    What are you saying?? Aren't all fabrics licensed?

    I've finished the tops - Two holiday table runners, five wreath wall hangings and one holiday bow tuck purse. Now I just have to get off my butt and quilt them.

    I've been making tree skirts again. Here are the two I've made so far this year. The picture was taken before the binding was done on the red one.

    That's not really true. You can read about this at http://www.tabberone.com. In a nutshell, though, the First Sale Doctrine says that once an item has been sold, the seller has no more control over what happens to it afterward. Meaning, if you have purchased a lawfully made piece of fabric - licensed or not - you can do with it what you please.

    However... if for instance it it has Mickey Mouse on it, and you make a child's apron, you have to be careful how you describe it. You cannot call it an officially licensed Mickey Mouse or Disney apron. You can say that it is made from officially licensed fabric.

    The Tabberone site contains some very useful information and is well worth looking at, in regards to this subject.

    Consider the people who are likely to attend and the local economy. Base your projects on that so you don't go over their budgets.

    Think of items your visitors may want to give as major gifts or thank-you gifts. On your table label a few items as possible thank-you gifts, teacher's gifts etc.

    Hope this helps.

    I was thinking of fabrics that are franchised and sold with emblems and colors of football teams. I guess you can buy this material and make gifts for your family but you can't sell it for profit, like hot pads with the Cowboys or Saints logos on it. Too bad because they would sell well, be easy to make and not cost much.

    Love the tree skirts and all the great ideas. I am still very confused about using licensed material and selling items made using it.
