First Freebie Pattern Friday!!

Image
As I posted two days ago, I am going to start posting on my blog again... on a regular basis. *Gasp* I know, I know, but my schedule is opening up... there have been big changes since we relocated and so I can get back to this.

I plan on doing a Freebie Pattern Friday post twice a month... if my brain is over-productive, I may add more. What is the point of designing if I never seen them beaded up? Now, these free patterns will most likely be flat peyote, brick or loom because that is what I do. Keep in mind, I still sell other patterns in my Zibbet shop, but if I decide to offer one of those patterns in my freebie patterns, I will remove the listing in my shop. And, I also still occasionally sell completed items in my shop, so take a peak once in a while.

Anyway, here is the pattern that I am offering for my First Freebie Pattern Friday:


I chose this pattern as the first one because it's getting close to Halloween and The Day of the Dead, it's a popular pattern of mine, AND b…

Freebie Pattern Friday 10-12-2018 The 2 Little Unicorns

Image
Today I present to you my 2 Little Unicorns Peyote Stitch pattern. I came up with these when my son threw out the challenge to make a unicorn. I think he had the unicorn emoji in mind, but for now these will do. They will soon be glued onto magnets for his collection. In the meantime, these two are going to be dipped in Protecta Clear to stiffen them and then added to some earring findings for my daughter. The first unicorn I attempted, I set aside because it was just too big. The second and third were wonky, first I noticed the eyes were off-center and then it was pointed out that the horn was off-center, as well! I have fixed that and the major differences between these two are the hair... one person said #1 is sassy and I agree with that! I used primary colors, first, because I liked the brightness and contrast of the colors and second because there aren't enough traditional unicorn colors available in the 15/0 Delica size. I keep hoping they will expand the color line! I have…

Bonus #4 Freebie Pattern Friday 10-11-2018 Jack Russell Terrier Charms

Image
Today I present my Jack Russell Terrier charms/pendants. These little cuties were made in Peyote Stitch with 15/0 Delicas. I just love dogs! And having a student studying to become a Vet Tech is a great excuse to make dog charms... cat charms... and other cute animal charms. Of course, as I always say, you can use whatever size beads, whatever kind of beads and don't just confine yourself to making charms for earrings.... And I would love to see your versions of this these cuties.

Bonus #3 Freebie Pattern Friday 10-10-2018 Little Pandas Pendant/Charm

Image
Another day, another bead pattern... and this one is my Little Pandas Pendant/Charms. Again, they are made using 15/0 Delicas, but you can go larger. I don't have much to say tonight, I've been absorbed by the coverage of Hurricane Michael. I can't believe he's still a Category 1 as I am writing this at 10:15pm. I pray those that were in the area and those still in the path are a-okay and just have to deal with clean-up and power outages. Ugh. Stay safe, folks!

Bonus #2 Freebie Pattern Friday 10-9-2018 Sled Dog Charms

Image
As promised, here is Tuesday's Bonus Freebie Pattern Friday, my Sled Dog patterns. As has been the pattern lately, these evolved from other dogs, which evolved from something else at the request of my kids. I think my daughter has a pair of earrings in most of the charms I've done lately. And, as I always say, feel free to change up colors in the pattern and size of beads. I used 15/0 Miyuki Delicas, but you can use any size you want. And, of course, these can be more than just earring charms, they can be key fobs, pendants, sew on to clothing, etc. Just have some fun and if you feel like it, share with me!

Bonus #1 Freebie Pattern Friday 10-8-18 Little Chihuahua Charms

Image
Today I am putting out into the internet universe my Little Chihuahua Charms, aren't they cute? You'll get all three, with or without the bows and bow ties. I love chihuahuas, I mean, who doesn't, right? I use them for earrings, but they make good charms or pendants, too. It just depends on what size Delicas you're using. I used 15/0 in the picture below, the penny is there for a size reference. I cannot wait to see how you use them!

Freebie Pattern Friday Yorkie Charms 10-5-2018

Image
Please excuse my mess, I thought I should update the look and layout of my blog. 
So, today I share these two cuties with you! I love them, they are so cute, and just like the other dog charms, they evolved from one of the others. It's really fascinating to see what comes about while bead pattern brainstorming. Anyway, I have so many patterns in the cue that I might do one a day next week because for a special change, I don't have much going on outside of the house - I've been away a lot with my son's bowling practices, league, and matches.

Freebie Pattern Friday, My Version of Bead Woven Emoji's 9-21-2018

Image
Hello! Today I am sharing my version of Bead Woven Emojis... I created them while I was creating my dogs, cats, and hearts. I created a version way back when I was first learning beading and while cute, they were big and not a good enough circle shape for me. So, I finally made the time to figure out something I like better. I've included plenty of Emojis that I didn't bead up, but someone may want to. Here are the ones I beaded up....



















There are sixteen included in the pattern. I stitched them up using 15/0 Miyuki Delicas in Peyote Stitch. You may be able to bead them up using brick stitch, but I don't know... I don't like brick stitch that much and rarely use it. 
I used these for earrings, sewing the jump ring directly at the top of each emoji, but you may choose to create a loop with beads or whatever. You can also glue them onto magnets, sew them on clothes or bags like patches, etc... there's really no limit but your imagination. Enjoy!
If you want the feature…
