      Default How to get the Facebook freebie without signing up for Facebook

      If you don't want to give away your personal information on Facebook, you can still get the Facebook freebie every day. The easiest way is to sign up with Cutie Pie on the wish list request thread and she will email them to you every month or so.

      http://www.embroideryforum.com/forum...-Requests-HERE!

      If you think it is cheating on Shawn to do this, I can assure you that she would not do it without his approval because that would be illegally sharing designs which would get her banned from the site. The second way and the fastest is to download them yourself everyday just as you do the daily winner. Following is one method.

      Go to the daily free design page. After you download the daily winner, right click on the Facebook winner (see the blue arrow on illustration 1). (Click on the illustration to see a larger image. Click the close button at the bottom of the picture to return here.)

      Click image for larger version.

      Choose "save image(picture) as" option from the pop up menu that appears when you right click.

      Click image for larger version.

      This will open a small window to enable you to save the picture. You can do that if you want to keep a picture of the design, but before you do that, highlight the name of the design and do a control copy (Ctrl key plus C key).

      Click image for larger version.

      If you don't want to save a picture just hit cancel after copying the name of the design. This will return you to the web page.
      Now that you have the name of the design, and have returned to the web page, click in the browser URL (web address box) and type "http://www.designsbysick.com/todaypes/"

      Click image for larger version.

      Then press Ctrl + P (control paste) to add the name of the Facebook design. Finally, type .pes or .hus or whatever your desired format is (You can only request a format that Shawn offers or it won't work) For example, I prefer .vip, but on some designs that is not available so I have to request another, often .hus.) After your address is complete hit enter to load that web page or click on the arrow (see blue arrow in the illustration above). What will happen at that point is a small window will open allowing you to choose the destination for your saved design.

      Select a folder for your file and click "save".

      You now have the Facebook freebie saved on your computer and Facebook doesn't have any of your personal information. If you need further clarification on any step in this process, just let me know and I will try to answer your questions.

      I don't know about the list, but this should work. I get "oh no i cant find that" if I don't have the name of the file exactly right, or if the format I want isn't available. It is also only good for the day that the design is offered for free on Facebook. You can't go back for any that you missed this way. This is the method I still use, so I don't know why it's not working for you unless something is not typed in correctly, with no added spaces.

      The problem may be that the http address should be https Today's free design address is :-
      https://www.designsbysick.com/todaypes/elegantflowerblocks_001.pes

      Thanks Veronicasmith, this is an old post and I hadn't noticed that the picture showed http. In my link that I use, I do have https. I hope this helps cheryla.

      https://www.designsbysick.com/todaypes/.vp3

      This is the link I currently use. This takes me to a page that says "
      Oh oh, I can't find that."
      Then I click in the URL box and add the complete name of the free design between the / and the .vp3.
      Then I hit enter and a box opens to allow me to download the design. For today's design that would be:
      https://www.designsbysick.com/todayp...n3_007_4x4.vp3

      Of course you can use any of the offered formats instead of the vp3. Please note that what looks like spaces between the 3 and 007 and 4x4 are actually underscores "_". Spaces will not work. The name has to be precise.
