Free Patterns For Loom Beading
One of the things i enjoy as much as beading on a loom is thinking up new designs and drawing them out on paper. Loom beaded strips can be used on so many things like dog leashes, cowboy hats, horse bridals and reins, hair barrettes, wrist bands and on and on.
I have some free patterns below for you to browse through and print if you wish. I will add more from time to time, so be sure to bookmark this site, and tell all your friends.

All of these loom beading patterns are created by me, one bead at a time. Feel free to print and use any patterns you wish, make stuff with them, sell stuff with them. BUT PLEASE DO NOT SELL MY PATTERNS INDIVIDUALLY OR IN A COLLECTION. You are more than welcome to use them on your blogs and web-sites, but please give credit by way of a link to this page.
Using The Patterns
These patterns are just simple geometric designs. They were not made to specifically fit any one project you might want to do. They are more or less just swatches to get your creativity flowing.
For example, if you want to make a beaded strip to sew on a belt, you may take one of the patterns above and repeat it several times till you have the correct length you need. Or perhaps, you are just making a beaded barette, and the patterns above are too long, well you could just omit rows from the patterns to get your desired length.
On each pattern i have tried to give an idea of the actual size it would turn out to be if you are using size 10/0 beads. In general, a square inch is 10 beads wide and 15 beads high. If you use a different size bead, the size will end up totally different.
