Free Downloads

THIS IS A TEST! - Since there is not a way to upload a pdf to this blog, I am attempting to upload some free downloads to Google Drive and then provide a link here (below).  I am hoping this works.  If it does, I will again be able to offer a few free micro macrame jewlery patterns/tutorials.

Please try these out and let me know if they work - does the link take you to the document without having to sign in?  And does it allow you to download the document?

New Kid in Town

There is a "new kid in town", or rather a new networking site - Kind of like Pinterest, but strictly for handmade stuff - Crafters Lounge - I have signed up and am trying it out...

Go ahead, check it out...

29 Mar 15 - UPDATE:

Not sure yet if I like this new site...way too much advertising for my taste.  But, I will wait and see if it actually gets some traffic.

1 APR 15 - UPDATE:

I am optimistic today!  The good people over at Crafter's Lounge saw my post here and responded (see comments below).  I went right over to their site and it is improved!  No more flickering with all the ads.  I don't mind some ads, I understand the need.

Thank you, Crafter's Lounge for listening and for responding!

KnotGypsy is having a big BLOW-OUT SALE on Micro Macrame Jewelry!

I decided to have a big "BLOW-OUT SALE"!

I have placed over 30 pieces of finished jewelry on sale at my ArtFire shop.  Buy some for yourself or stock up on gifts...Here are just a few of the pieces featured:

Micro Macrame BRACELET - Spirals in Pink and Gray

 

 

 


Micro Macrame EARRINGS - Spiral Hoops w Drop in Black and Tan

 

 

 

 

 

Micro Macrame NECKLACE - StarBurst in Red Peach and Bronze

 

 

 

 

Micro Macrame BRACELET - Tapestry in Green

 

 

 

Micro Macrame PATTERN BUNDLES for greater savings!

I have lowered the prices on all my patterns and I am listing several "pattern bundles".  By grouping patterns together into "bundles", I can offer a "volume discount" on those patterns.

So far, I have created and listed the following bundles (I have plans for a couple more bundles over the next few days as well, so keep checking back):

 Tubular

Includes Tubular Necklace and Bangle Bracelet and Acorn Earrings.  Skill level:  Intermediate (some experience with double half-hitches needed)






Basic Angle and Gridlock Bracelets

Includes Basic Angle Bracelets and Gridlock Bracelet A - Learn how to make 8 different bracelets!  From Beginner to Intermediate skill levels...enough to keep you busy for quite some time!




Diamonds

Includes 4 patterns all based on the "Diamonds" knotting scheme (from beginner level to intermediate):

Basic Diamonds Jewelry Set
Casual Diamonds Bracelet
Arrow Bracelet
StarBurst Necklace and Earrings


 Fans

Includes Classic Fans Jewelry Set and Mosaic Fans Bracelets.  Mostly for intermediate skill level or advanced beginner - not too complicated, but needs some dexterity and practice with diagonal double half-hitches.




17-plus Micro Macrame Pattern Package

Let's not forget my best bundle - all my patterns!

I have lowered the price to just $18.00 for a limited time! - from now until the end of April 2015 when it will return to its original price of $25.00 (still a great price).

Reorganization

I am currently reorganizing so all my patterns will be available at my Etsy shop only.  I am also lowering most of my prices and creating some "pattern packages" (2 or more patterns bundled together to save you money).

I am currently updating all the relevant posts to reflect this change and updating all my Etsy pattern listings.  Please be patient as I work to get this done.

Later, I will try to figure out a way to post the free patterns here on this website, but this will take some time.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like a copy of the following free patterns/tutorials, feel free to contact me (find contact form in sidebar):
  • The Basics
  • Spirals Anklet, Lariat Necklace, and Hoop Earrings
  • Original Waves Bracelet
Update:  I have lowered prices on my patterns and have updated all the relevant posts here on this website to redirect those interested to my Etsy shop.  Still working on putting together some bundles.
