Hi Bluprint Indie Designers!

As you may know, we’ve recently launched Bluprint Patterns, which is a FREE pattern sales service for indie designers. If you haven’t heard about this fantastic new feature, be sure to check out the pattern sales FAQ for more information.

If you have started to upload your patterns for sale on Bluprint, we’ve got something for you!

It’s a badge that you can embed in your blog’s sidebar to let people know where to find your downloadable PDF patterns.

Posting the badge on your website is easy, just copy and paste the following code, editing the link to point to your own pattern store:

<a href="ADD PATTERN STORE URL" target="_blank"><img src="" width="150" height="150" /></a>

For example, the link to my pattern store is:

So I’d change the code to read:

<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="150" height="150" /></a>

For Facebook users, you’ll need to right-click on the image, save it to your computer, and link it to your store using the url at the top of your Pattern Store page.



Thanks so much for offering this service to indie designers! I just uploaded three of my patterns and looking forward to uploading more, and interacting with the craftsy community.

Not sure if I ask this here or not, but does anyone have the pattern for those wavy scarves that is knit with “2 needles and in 2 hours”? It seems to spiral I think. Thank you.


You will find the pattern for those scarfs on the label of the yarn in which it is made in. The yarn is called Red Heart Boutique Sashay. Hope you find it, good luck.


Here is a rough guide to how the scarf works, though I don’t have a pattern. C/on lf the amount of stitches that you think you would need, then work side to side, increasing the first stitch of every second row, and decreasing one stitch at the end of that row. It is your choice whether to work stockinette stitch, garter stitch, moss stitch, or… ?
Keep a note of how you did it, and before you know it, you will have a pattern to sell here on Craftsy. Designer in 2 hours? Would love to know how you got on, and remember, there’s no shame in taking something apart and starting again, but that will almost certainly add onto your 2-hours of knitting.


Thank you for this blog badge ! 🙂

I have a pattern I want to share, but don’t know how to make a PDF file? Help 🙂 Please



I do alot of crocheting, & just learned by myself how to do quilting so still kind of new at it basically. I also do beading where I have made necklaces & bracelets but not earrings, but would love to learn how to do that one. I have made other kinds of crafts from before like out of flower pots, Christmas decorations & the list goes on. I don’t know how to make a PDF file for any of this, if any one can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!


am at present doing an applique class and am very slow as i have suffered a stroke,i have quilted for many years and also crochet and knitting and sugarcraft as i only can use one hand and arm so am now attempting sewing again I also would like to learn how to create a PDF file any help appreciated,

Not sure if people already received help in creating PDFs. There are a few ways I use to create PDFs for my patterns/instructions. If you have a newer version of Microsoft Word (I have Word 2010), and you can create your pattern in there, then it is very easy. When you click “Save As,” there is an option to “Save as Type” right below where you name your file. One option is PDF, Select PDF. Then be sure that “optimize for” (below your “Save as Type” selection) is set to “Standard” NOT “minimum size.” If you create patterns in Microsoft Publisher, even older versions allow you to save as PDF. Another free PDF converter I have used a lot in the past is called: PrimoPDF. You can download it for free at CNET, a trusted site. Here is a link to download:

I hope that helps!
PS. I import pictures of my pattern pieces into my Word Doc. That is another Help answer… let me know if you need info on that.


Just grabbed it, thanks. Crafty Love! best, Meliisa

I have a pattern for sale on Craftsy and I’m also a member of the affiliate program. Is it possible to combine these two, and have a link to my pattern store with the affiliate ID embedded?


Wonderful! I love Craftsy 🙂

I do agree with all the ideas you have offered in your post.

They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still,
the posts are too quick for newbies. May you please prolong them
a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the badge. I am having trouble copying it. When I paste it to add my pattern store link it does not show up as code.

Am not sure what to do with it. Any help you can offer will be great.
