So, as I understand it - we are selecting a designer's piece that inspires us & we make our own original piece from this inspiration or..... do we have to use a commercial pattern as inspiration & create our original design? Perhaps either option is available?
Either option is fine! Just be sure to include the photo of your inspiration and describe how you made it. Good luck!
