Sadly though, the makers of a similar pillow have accused my design to be too much like theirs. Not that the pattern itself is a problem, but that I am "encouraging people to infringe on" their said patent. I want other wahms to feel free to sew any of my designs to sell without worry of infringement. Also, as a wahm myself, I absolutely do not want to be in a business rivalry, so I need to make a few modifications to my design.
I will look into this issue further, but for the time being, the current pregnancy pillow pattern will be retired as of July, 2013.
Although I love this design, I am forced to re-visit the pattern to try to adjust the shape so as to not infringe on any patents.
In the mean time, I would love to hear personal reviews of the pregnancy pillow pattern, the likes and dislikes, new ideas for a replacement pillow design and of course.....(drum roll)....Pictures! I would love to see some pictures of your pregnancy pillow that you have sewn from this or any other pattern.
Although it might take a while, keep a lookout for the next full body pregnancy pillow design. Someday I'll get another one out there. :)
UPDATE - The plan is to start working on the new pregnancy pillow design at the end of November, 2013. Hopefully we can get it done before Christmas so that you can whip one up for yourself or a gift!
