  4. I would like to voice my opioin in the way you have your direct download set up. I have to say I really like your patterns so don’t get me wrong. It is just that getting the direct downloads it hard to get because when I get to them I have to deal with lots, I mean lots of ads messy up with the direct download and I can not get it all the time. Sometimes I do not get it in the first go. I do think you need to rethink how you are doing your direct download so that it is easier access. That not so many ads are poping up on our end.

    1. I’m so happy you like my patterns, and I truly appreciate the feedback. Regarding the ads, I’m sure you understand that the ad revenue is essential to designers being able to offer free patterns. This month I have offered 5 patterns as free downloads, and the ad revenue is what enables me to do so. As far as placement of the ads, I don’t decide on that; Google places them.
      I sincerely hope that you continue as a subscriber to My Fingers Fly, and hopefully I can continue to offer free crochet patterns.
      Happy Crocheting!

  5. I am wondering where you purchased the utility strap with the buckle in white. I can only find black or the pieces to make my own strap in white on Amazon. Also, what width is the strap you used?

    1. This is the one I used.
