If you love to sew, you are in luck. Unless you are skilled at creating your own sewing patterns, you need to have a pattern with which to work in order to sew your item. The nice thing about a sewing pattern is that it can be used over and over again, if preserved nicely. However, patterns can be expensive — unless you know where to get them for free.
There are many sites online that offer free sewing patterns. Just type in “free sewing patterns” as your search term, and you’ll get hundreds of options. Many of the websites you may already be familiar with since they have monthly magazines as well, but other sites are not as well known. Some of those not so well known sites can be a treasure trove of free patterns in specific categories, such as Victorian-era clothes, doll clothing from the 1800′s or even quilt patterns from the early 1900′s.
Also, if you are part of a sewing circle or know a few others who like to sew, you can swap or trade patterns with each other. It’s a great way to save money since you don’t have to purchase the pattern yourself. The hits keep comin’: Free Sewing Pattern!
