Freebie Pattern Friday, Cupcakes! 4-6-2018

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.
If you want the featured free pattern, you just have to do TWO things:
  1. Comment on my blog  :-)) - You can find the spot to comment down at the end of this post.
  2. AND send me an email so that I can email the PDF to you... the comments form on my blog does not give me your email address... without your email address, I cannot send it. The comment form is located next to this post or at the top of the page under "copyscape"  or on the right as you are looking at the screen.

Peyote Stitch Cupcakes by 3 Peeps Designs

What Is Not Included:
  • Directions for peyote stitch are not included... there are plenty of sources online for that by people who are better teachers than I.
  • The Word pattern is not included because it is a relatively simple project and the color chart should be more than enough.
  • Adobe Reader for viewing the PDF file
*** If you use my pattern, please be kind and give me the credit as the designer, ie beaded by Dana Shmoe and Designed by 3 Peeps Designs.  I don't mind if you sell your completed project for bead money, but I want design credit. Why do I want design credit? Well, not only is it charitable for you,  I do still sell some of my patterns and I use the money to buy beads. It isn't a business, it is for fun ie funding my beading habit. Seeing my designs in your shop (or anywhere else) without the design credit takes all of the fun away... and I will take steps to have the photo removed.. This is fun, I'm trying to be charitable, and I design a lot more than I have a chance to bead... and I know there are others who don't like to design, but do enjoy beading. As soon as Free Pattern Friday stops being fun, I will stop doing it. 

****If it's your first time to my blog or you haven't been here in a while, take a look at my past posts because there are a lot of free patterns and other suff.

 *** And just because I am offering my patterns for free does not mean you can just pass it around to your friends. Please, have them come to my blog and comment, etc in order to get their own copy.  * I know most of you don't need to be reminded of beady etiquette, but some of you do and I'm just trying to keep it real.

I apologize for not having some sort of automatic download of the pattern on the blog, but I don't know how to do it and I don't want to learn right now. I like the interaction that commenting and then sending an email requires. If you're on Facebook, send me a friend request! I'm trying to fill my FB feed up with beadwork rather than anything too serious.
