12 Days of Presents – Day 09

Penguin 02

Penguin 02

One of the hardest things for me when creating a pattern is trying to decide on sizes for each pattern I create.

I never know if I’m creating the right size for what is good for someone else. That’s why I will resize a design for people when they ask.

In this pattern today, the sizes I created for it are 5×7, 7×9, and 9×11, the hard part is should I make it larger? With it being the shape of a Matroyshka, I wanted to create it in various sizes so you could do each one if you chose to create this pattern as Matroyshka’s. With three patterns it may be enough, but if you wanted another size, I hope you will feel free to ask.

The free pattern is offered in the 7×9 size only. The full pattern comes with all three sizes and SVG cutting files to make cutting easier.

12 Days of Presents – Day 07 and 08 Now Released…

Santa and Rudy

SSanta and RudyI thank you all for your patience yesterday and this morning, we didn’t arrive home until late in the afternoon and I needed a bit of a nap once we arrived.. We picked up the dog, and then I got to work on finishing up this post and the patterns. I’ve had issues with getting images to show as I was writing this post, it’s still not working so I had to write this post manually then paste it into the browser editor… I am unsure what is wrong with wordpress today, but I will figure it out. At this point I just want to get this post posted.

Today, I will present day 7 (yesterday Monday December 11, 2017) and today’s Day 8.

Please note, both patterns are free in the 7×9 size only.

I believe the comment problem is now fixed, ty for alerting me.

Christmas Characters 12

Christmas Characters 12Good Morning Everyone. Thank you for taking the time to visit this post to download your free pattern. I’m having an odd problem, it seems that there were 284 downloads of the free pattern yesterday, but only 227 page visits. You might not think of this as odd, but I do… and I am NOT happy. Part of my reason for not using Craftsy as the download page is because I want people to visit my posts. This has to mean to me that the direct download page is being shared versus people actually visiting my blog. I do not want to deny those who come here and are not sharing the post the ability to get there patterns freely, but having 57 people download without having visiting this post bothers me greatly. So I ask you, PLEASE, be respectful of anyone who offers you a  FREE pattern. These patterns take time to make, they take up valuable resources. I do NOT use free artwork, I have paid for the artwork that is used in my patterns, and I would hope people would respect that they are getting good quality patterns with legitimate artwork used. If this trend continues, how this event works next year will change drastically. I do not mind if you share the link to this post, but please don’t share the direct download link.

The next part of this post deals with how this event works… Please take a moment and READ the following…. it concerns how downloads work for this event.

Santa Moon 2

Santa Moon 2Here we are on day 02 of 12 Days of Presents. I loved hearing your comments about day 01’s angel. I am so happy you liked her. I can’t wait to see your creations and I hope you’ll send me photos.

Today’s free pattern is a Santa. Many moons ago, I created Santa Moon 01 and it’s been sitting on Craftsy now for the last two years. I updated this pattern over the weekend simply because I knew I’d be releasing this new one. I had originally offered part of that pattern as a free pattern, so today I’m offering the new one also as a partial free pattern.
