Sharing - A few of my favourite Free Sewing Patterns

I love hunting down the perfect pattern for my next sewing project BUT I also love a free pattern, and thought I would share a few with you. Type "free sewing pattern" into google and a ton will pop up. Sadly not all of them will be jems, with clear instructions and working pattern pieces. The ones I am sharing with you are from some of our most loved indie pattern companies and you can be sure, when you pin their pattern on to your precious fabric and cut out, that these patterns will be a pleasure to sew. With clear and easy to follow instructions.

Once you have selected an awesome pattern to print at home, you MUST check this box, found on your pattern (as shown below) before you proceed with printing. Before you print all the patterns pieces you must select the page/sheet with this box on it and print if first, using a ruler or tape measure check carefully, that the box matches the measurements given. If not your pattern will be too small or too big. Once you are happy that the box is the correct measurement you can print off the pattern with confidence. If it doesn't match you will have to select a different program try again and keep trying until you get the measurement to match the box.


All the pdf patterns will have instructions on how to print at home. This is a useful guide to printing a pdf pattern at home




The Peppermint Magazine Sewing School is an unbelievable find packed with innovate and modern patterns.

Lots of the patterns are designed by the contemporary design company In The Folds


These snugly cosy boots are from the much loved Tilly and the Buttons, they would make a much welcome gift too !

I just love this bag from Merchant and Mills, the pattern is in measurements so you don't need a home printer. You can make your own pattern from the measurements or chalk directly onto your fabric.


This fun pattern for Easter Bunnies is from Jen Hogg Blog has been designed for mini sewers, to make on their own ! Lots of you will remember Jen Hogg from the Sewing Bee 2019.



Purl Soho a firm favourite, that offers lots of choice and never disappoints. Dressmaking patterns for women, children and babies. Lots of gorgeous items to make for the house. Patchwork quilt patterns and

a bonus - knitting and crochet patterns too !


Last but not least this pouf from Closet Case Patterns is a terrific way to use up lots of small pieces of fabric from previous sewing projects.


Not every one has a home printer so I am included a few website that will print the pdf pattern and post the pattern to you.
