I wish I knew databases

As time goes on I wish I knew how to make a database to house the data for my patterns. I also wish I knew how to put said data on a page to make it look decent. All I want to do is go to a database and fill in the form to add it when I publish a pattern or update it. If I had the money I would pay someone to do this for me. Until then I read about things I have no understanding of and I don’t think I will ever understand. I should have learned when I had the option to when I got out of school. It’s a big regret of mine – not going to some form of college to learn anything.

If anyone knows of a program that already does this and could point me in the direction I will be forever grateful.

Lupus Awareness Pattern – Flutterby Keychain

I designed this butterfly keychain in honor of Lupus Awareness. May is Lupus Awareness Month. Lupus is a horrible auto-immune disease that usually goes undetected because the symptoms mimic other illnesses. If you would like to know more about Lupus please go to If you would like to donate to a good Lupus organization checkout Molly’s Fund at

You can get the pattern for free on the site & on ravelry!

If you are wanting to make this to sell for charity for any cause please do. None of the normal copy right stuff I ask is needed for this EXCEPT please don’t claim the pattern as your own. I’d love to see what you have done. You can send me pictures, information, etc via email at
