    Try Think that's the site. they have thousands of patterns. Some free ones too. I haven't been on there in a while. And the site is always changing. I use to download graph paper off there
    The things you are doing today are the traditions of twenty-five years from now.

      Thanks I went there the turtle they have is in peyote stitch I am just learning that I dont think I would be able to transfer that to loom . I am drawing challenged . But I can paint go figure that one. Thanks for all your help . Oh by the way . I spent most the day washing feathers , an all of a sudden I recalled cleaning chickens , so I boiled water an put those jokers in that boiling water an persto feathers came right out no damage which I am glad of .

        Oh this is a GOOD ONE!

        Ok I thought I would give this idea a shot. So I took a deep breath , cut the interfacing that you use on shirt collars etc. Picked a pattern I had scanned years ago an . Took another deep breath. I cut the interfacing the size of a standard printer paper , laid it on top of my paper in the printer an hit print .
        You will not believe the colors an detail .. So now I am off to bead that turtle I wanted ......... Its wonderful I will post this picture when I am done beading it .. Gotta go bead now ..YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          traditional womans yoke?

          by warhoop
          I just read the last post on other styles of beadwork and Black Bear posted an excellent site for new time beaders.(thank you again Black Bear) But I was wondering if anybody else had any other good links for beaders that are just starting out or want to try new styles.
