A woman who auctioned a loom band garment for charity said she was "disappointed and hurt" after the buyer told her he would resell it.
Fashion design graduate Kelly Bull, 25, from Barton Seagrave, Northamptonshire used 27,000 pink loom bands to create the one-off top.
She sold the top for £225, half of which will go to Breast Cancer Care.
The supply teacher said she hoped the buyer would not "sell it on for his own profit, rather than for charity".
Ms Bull put a reserve of £100 on the top, to cover the cost of its making, and raised a further £208 from a Just Giving web page.
The mother-of-one said: "Some people put loom band garments up for auction at a 'buy it now price' of a couple of thousand pounds.
"I'm disappointed and hurt, after all the work that's gone into it, that it's not being kept and used."
Ms Bull spent four hours a day, seven days a week, for a month designing and making the size eight to 10 asymmetric spiral top.
The BBC has attempted to contact the buyer.
