Want to know how to get free sewing patterns because your sewing machine sits at the dining room table more often than you do? If you're a sewing wizard, you may be on the lookout for new sewing ideas. Look no further. Here is how to get free sewing patterns.
Step 1: Go to The Angry Chicken.
Angry Chicken is offering a free sewing pattern for children's barrettes. The Angry Chicken states, "I am not really able to stay focused on any one big project right now (like the the quilt and blanket I have started and not finished for this baby) so, I jumped to something else and I tried my hand at some felt covered barrettes last week and these are quick and easy."
Step 2:Â Visit Oh, Fransson!
Oh, Fransson! is the website for Elizabeth Hartmann, who is a talented seamstress and pattern designer. The Margaret Bag is named for a bag she made for her sister's birthday and is available as a free sewing pattern at her website.
Step 3:Â Go to SimpleSewing Projects.com.
Jennifer Thoden of SimpleSewingProjects.com has detailed instructions on how to make lined draperies. The easy to follow free pattern has 15 steps. Jennifer said, "I made a total of 8 panels... 2 per window. I averaged 2 Panels a night. So, you could easily dress up a window in a day."
Step 4:Â Visit Ben Franklin Crafts & Frame Shop online.
This Web site offers some nice free sewing patterns. The Pocket Insert Placemat Bag is simple to make and uses a placemat, ribbon, buttons, and 1/4 yard of fabric.
