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

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 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 Emojis. 
 
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, 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.

 *** 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.

Freebie Pattern Friday, Little Koalas 9-7-2018


For today's Freebie Pattern Friday, I have Little Koalas! Aren't they cute. I used 15/0 Delicas in order that they remain small for earrings, but of course, you can use whatever size Delicas you would like. These were created while I was on my dog and cat face kick... it's amazing how many animal faces morph into another with just a simple change in bead placement.  Again, use these for earrings, charms, pendants, or tie pins, etc. Gluing these on magnets are great for adding a little something to my office... I have one of everything, it's quite the collection.

Freebie Pattern Friday Little Jack Russell Terriers 9-1-2018


I'm gonna post this pattern for Freebie Pattern Friday for last Friday. I forgot to post it. And I will post another one after this for this coming Friday because I will be unavailable for posting to my blog.

These cuties are Little Jack Russell Terriers. Use them for earrings, charms, pendants or whatever else you would like. I'll be using them for earrings. I created these because they are just a cute and easy dog pattern to make... and there are so many Jack Russell Terrier fans out there. I used 15/0 Miyuki Delicas on this pair to ensure that they stay small. You, of course, can make them in whatever size Delicas you would like and as always, I'd love to see the results.
