Camera Buddies - {LIMITED} FREE PATTERNS

I have found a lot of joy (aka instant gratification) lately in whipping up some cute little camera buddies. They caught like wildfire on my Facebook page... I had no idea they would be so popular, but boy am I glad! They have been fun to create.

Introducing:

 The owl

 The dino

The octopus (that turned sideways when I posted it) 

and the butterfly!

I have many more of these to make, including Elmo and Minnie-inspired, puppies, ladybugs, bears, frogs, etc.! I am so excited. It's hard to work on anything else!

I'll be releasing the pattern on my Etsy soon, but I will send out ten free copies of each one first. Please comment with your email address or email me to request your free copy. I ask that you are a follower of my blog and a follower of my Facebook to receive a free copy. They will be first come, first served. You may sell your finished products as long as you give me exclusive credit (including a link) for the pattern.

Happy crafting!

Thanks everyone! The last of the free copies of the owl camera buddy pattern have been sent out. The other patterns will not be written until the end of the month... I had family in town and now I'm preparing for a craft show! :) I'll write them after that and if you requested one, it will be sent at that time.

Thanks again!
