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.
If you want the featured free pattern, you just have to do ONE thing:
- 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 Yorkie charms, etc.
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 Smith 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 makes me question why I am doing this. 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. I'm also on Twitter (although not very active) and Instagram.
