Ok friends, as far as this pattern goes, I don't know what i am doing with it yet. Initially, I offered it as a promotion. Then I had several customers requesting it in my shop because they didn't have facebook. So I set up a couple listings for those customers that wanted to purchase it. Per etsy, I cannot set up a listing that someone doesn't purchase or direct traffic to another site. That is why it wasn't offered for free in that location or directed elsewhere for the product.

Rightfully so, a few customers that had purchased this previously were upset when I set it up on my blog. Since I can't make it right for everyone, the pattern is being discontinued to everyone for the time being.  I do my best to be generous to my fans/customers offering replacement patterns, continuous freebies, and much lower prices than my competitors. <3 <3 Lesson learned I guess. Keep an eye out for future offers ~dusty
