Freebie Pattern Friday, Little Terrier, 5-4-2018

Image
I decided to post this coming Friday's Freebie a few days early since I was just now getting caught up with all of the ones for April. This by no means means I will stay current! Just FYI, but now that I have a system set up, hopefully it means I will. At least a little bit. Of course, it would be nice to schedule the post to pop up on the correct day and time, but something is going on with Blogger and it won't work for me. I have been contemplating looking for anther place to freely host my blog and I guess, this means I should get serious. 
Anyway, today's Freebie Pattern Friday are my Little Terriers Charms/Pendants. They are so cute! I love them. I may even have to make a point of wearing them. FYI, I don't wear most of my jewelry because a.) I never go anywhere, b.) I don't have my jewelry that organized, and c.) I'm super casual unless I'm going to Mass and then I only wear the basics.

Freebie Pattern Friday, Little Bully Charms/Pendants 4-27-2018

Image
Today's Freebie Pattern Friday are my Little Bully charms/pendants. The pattern will include one each of the Little Bullies with a bow tie, a bow, and one with neither. Surely, that should please most everyone.

If you want to know how I've designed most of the little doggies and kitties, they started from one of the hearts I designed that I decided I didn't like in heart form. :-) Truly, one design morphs into another and another.

Freebie Pattern Friday, Ice Cream Cones! 4-20-2018

Another fun design by me and free for you! I am having a good time with these simple designs because they are easy to do and easy to graph up. I don't know if you've noticed, but these ice cream cones and the cupcakes are similar to the poop emojis. As is often the case, one design gives birth to one or more other designs. And you'll see more of that when I post my other free patterns in the coming weeks.

Freebie Pattern Friday Hearts! April 13, 2018

Image
I'm not sure what got into my head, oh wait, never mind, I do. I was wanting to come up with a heart pendant (and future earrings) for my niece. In fact, between my daughter and my niece and even my son (poop emoji) I have had plenty of inspiration. Anyway, I wasn't happy with the heart patterns I had seen online. And, I'm always happier when I make up my own. 
Usually when I begin a new pattern, I start with graph paper and pens and pencil. Then when I am done sketching, I will put the ones I like into BeadTool 4 and then print them up and laminate them and then finally start beading. I ended up beading up 8 of the 12 or 13 patterns I came up with and out of those, I narrowed it down to 2 that I liked and would probably use in the future. One that I used right away for earrings for my daughter. I did them with 15/0 Miyuki Delicas and then I did 1 as a pendant for my niece in 8/0. I stiffened both and then finished them off with findings.

Freebie Pattern Friday, Cupcakes! 4-6-2018

Image
I'm using today to do some backtracking on posts... I let April get away from me because I was doing so much beading. I don't know about you, but when I get on the computer or get on my phone for browsing social media and everything else, I lose track of time. It's a time suck. Even getting online to post on my blog... it's a time suck.  So today's freebie is a cupcake design. Please note that I am using 15/0 Miyuki Delicas. I think I love 15/0 more than any other size. I mean, sure, 11/0s come in hundreds of colors, but the 15/0s are almost always perfectly shaped and sized... pretty much no culling is necessary. I just wished my local bead shops would carry size 15/0. I promise, I would shop there more often if they had 15/0s in stock!

Anyway, here is the cupcake.
