I see no problem with making it for a friend if they are simply paying for the pattern and the materials. However, if they pay you for the time it took to make the item then you are "profiting" from it and that would be a no-no. (And technically, I suppopse, they need to actually purchase the pattern, not just use the one you purchased). My understanding is also that minor changes to the pattern do not release you from the copyright obligation. I could be wrong, though. It's best to err on the side of caution and simply contact the designer.
