Freebie Pattern Friday 1-26-2018 "Poop" Emoji

Here is my pattern for my "Poop" Emoji. I came up with this pattern after seeing one of my Facebook friends post a picture of a poop or ice cream emoji that she made using Brick stick. I asked where I could buy the pattern because I have a teenage son who happens to giggle every time he sees this emoji, but she "couldn't remember" where she found it. I searched and searched and could not find anyone selling the pattern, just a few people selling completed emojis for sale. So, I decided I needed to make one, after all, my daughter gets most of my beadwork because it's jewelry. I could make this and put a magnet on the back or turn it into a pin or even sew it on something as a patch. Anyway, I got out my graph paper and markers and came up with a Peyote Stitch pattern (because, let's be honest, I don't really like Brick stitch... I find it to be very annoying.) I fine turned it while beading it up several times until I was happy with it. Then I put it into my bead software (BeadTool4) and am offering it for free to anyone who can do a couple of simple things...

If you want the featured free pattern, you just have to do ONE thing:
  1. 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 contact form is located at the top of the page. Now, if you would like to leave a comment on my blog, well, that is just gravy and I would certainly appreciate it... Feel free to comment on whether you like the pattern or not or if you have a blog I should check out, or how you use the patterns. 
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.
  • 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, 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.
