Default Re: Are the instructions for a funky loopy bow worth the $$?

thanks.....not sure if their is one or not. But I believe something should be posted for all newbies on here when they buy a tut. Just because it says in the tut not to be resold...doesnt mean anything....to the outside people of HG.

unfortunately, there will always be rule breakers. What's hilarious is when they get all offended when the same thing happens to them. Go figure.

Now, about the price of the tut originally in question, lol!

If you make and sell a few bows using this tut, you've made your money back. If you never do anything with the tut, you've lost money. If you make and sell a lot of bows using this tut, you've made a profit. Your call.

If you really like the bow and want to learn how to make it then I would suggest searching youtube, blogs, ect. There are so many FREE tutorials out there I mean TONS!!!! It may not be professional looking, or have cute graphics/pics ect. but all that doesn't really matter to me as long as I learn how to do it. I have bought tuts in the past and later found out there were 20 different tuts on the same exact thing for free. What really gets me the most is when you post something YOU made on a forum that was completely original and then a few days later you see someone selling instructions on how to make the same thing. To me that is just wrong and a very unclassy thing to do. I have had this happen to me but I held my tongue and just let her do her thing. I know Karma is a b*tch and one day it will bite her in the a$$. Some people will do anything to make a profit and wont hesitate to stab another hg in the back, or anyone else.

WOW that totally got off the subject but I feel much better now that I finally got it off my chest.

I bet this has happened to a lot of ladies who sell their tuts. I have paid for a lot of tuts and bow instructions....but the very last one I bought on here..did the trick and now their great looking.

I'd rather buy one and be done with it than spend hours looking on the net...which is easy to do, like right now!

I bought the first tutorial and about 2 weeks later she came out with the other. After I complained she sold it to me for half price.

All in all I would say that I was disappointed with the instructions. If you can make a loopy bow, then I don't think you need them.

they could if they wanted everyone to hate them essentially slap the writer in the face by profiting from the (i'm sure) hours, if not days, they spent writing it...

but you know...they are probably physically able to do it...it's just morally and ethically crappy

if you did that and sold it...it would definitely NOT stay with only the people who purchased it because eventually someone will leak the info...i mean...we all know about richard nixon's tapes cause someone leaked it...right? and write one and give to me...i swear i'll keep the secrets safe...(give...not sell...)

yes...like just about every tut you could want is somewhere for free...and it's totally sucky to rip off someone's original work (bow, tutu, etc) and write a tutorial for it and then sell the tut...

UNLESS...some crazy tutu maker has gone out of her way to prevent every member of a certain TOTALLY AWESOME forum from purchasing her products because she doesn't want anyone to know how to make it...if THAT happens...you should definitely puzzle out how to make her items and share the knowledge with the world!! ---i did this but decided to sell the tut rather than share for free because it took me like 3 days+ to put it all together...oh and i wrote it super detailed so someone who was new to making them could make a basic tutu...

and i'm so lazy when trying to do this sometimes so i just buy it...the first night i started making bows i spent like all night searching online for tuts and vids that were free...in the end i bought my first tut on ebay and thought i would lose it during the 4 hours i waited for the writer to wake up, check her email, and send me the tut....

*point self* shut up, andrea!....*reply self* yes, ma'am!
*nod self*...totally crazy here
