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

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 yet to bead these up in the 11/0 size, but I am sure I will get to it one of these days... once I have an lull in patterns that need beading up.

In this PDF, I include the picture of the actual beaded unicorns, the color chart of Delicas used, the color chart, and then a blank chart of each unicorn. I do this so that you can color it in the colors you want and this will give you a better idea of whether you like those color choices.

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.

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

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

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

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


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

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.
