Sadly, I’ve been without internet most of yesterday, and most of today. It finally came back on about an hour ago and I got to finishing up the uploading of the patterns. I was writing this post yesterday when it went down and stayed down. Apparently the troubles with the neighbor’s cable were not done with, they had to come and fix something in the ground.. Tore up the road and everything yesterday.
So I’m writing this post really fast on a Saturday to get it out to you. I do have a doctor’s appointment first thing Monday morning so please expect that post in the late morning hours too early afternoon.
I know it might be a little odd… but let’s play a little game, which of the following patterns is free? Just click the images below to find out!! — Note, Some of you have mentioned that you’re having an issue finding the free pattern??? It is the same way I always do it, there are just 8 images to click on, but as a hint: if you start at the top below you won’t open many to find the free pattern. If you see a price it’s not the free pattern, if you see the word “free” where the price should be, that’s the free pattern. Click thru like you always do to download it.
This pattern set is inspired by the artwork at Graphic Adventure.
Pattern Sizes are 6, 9, and 12-inch in each pattern.
Each shape comes with the cupcake and the ornament patterns (2 patterns for the price of one)
The full pattern includes the Mrs. Santa pattern as a bonus, it will not be sold individually.
Each pattern (except the free version) comes with a Guide also on how to get creative with ornaments and finishing them.
The full pattern is on intro at 25% off. Coupon Code: 12Days-Day05
The free version comes in the 6-inch sizes.
Basic Guidelines For This Event:
All downloads expire at the time of the next release or hopefully within 24 hours of the last post. During this event, I have two doctor’s appointments in the next 12 days, so posting tomorrow and next Wednesday maybe later in the day. Those of you who know me, that no matter what a previous days download stays up for 24 hours at the very least, after 24 hours it’s subject to expiration. I am very strict about this requirement. I will not send you a free pattern if you miss the deadline.
Patterns posted on Fridays, run the entire weekend giving my weekend visitors a chance to get at least one pattern during this event. I didn’t do this last year and I was sad about being so strict, so I’ve gone back to keeping them up for the weekend.
All downloads are on Payhip. – Payhip doesn’t like mobile downloads, so be prepared to send it to your email, Dropbox, google drive, or any other cloud service you may use if you are using a mobile device to download with. All payhip items are sent an email with the download link even tho you can download right after the purchase in your browser. If you’re on a mobile phone tho, wait until your on a device that you can use later. I do not own any mobile devices, so I do not know how to send it to your email, or a cloud service, I’m sure there are youtube videos or how to’s on the web to help you with this. Please get your download done the same day, as I delete these downloads after the expiration and they are removed from Payhip servers, they are not there forever for you to download freely.
If I made a mistake on a free pattern, the update will be fixed and everyone who downloaded it within the proper time frame will receive an email with the new download link to download it. You have 24 hours to get that done.
I will try to be posted by 6 am mst each day, but I’m not known for being on time during this event, so please know I will post as soon as possible. I’ve always ended this event on time tho, so don’t worry all 12 patterns will get posted.
Some thoughts on download issues. If you’re having a problem, try a different browser. You can always use the email you receive to click again. You get 5 tries to download the pattern. If you use all 5, you will have to go through the purchase process again to get the free pattern.
