So, here’s the plan. Ideally I would like to begin publishing something called Free Pattern Friday!
Hooray! Everyone loves free patterns!!
What this would entail:
- A free pattern by me for you to use for non-profit and personal use only please and thank you.
- The pattern could range from anything from Sculpey clay, jewelry to crochet or knitting. Or something really unusual like nalbinding. (Google it.)
- It would be most likely be every other week to monthly depending on how busy or inspired I am feeling. However, as a challenge for myself I would love to do it every week. This would probably have to be delayed into being a New Year’s Resolution type thing.
- Every pattern might not be quite for you. I’m kinda eclectic and my tastes and patterns will reflect this. But don’t worry, more than likely I’ll develop a pattern soon enough you will enjoy!
- Feel free to ask me any questions, especially if something seems unclear!
To start this out, here’s a pattern I designed just yesterday to begin this goal!
For personal and non-profit use only please. Do not sell this pattern or any items made by it.
