List of Free Patterns

I am a sucker for free patterns; knitting, crochet or sewing patterns, or tutorials for anykinds of crafts. Here are some of my favorites right now (click on the picture for pattern or tutorial):

Elsie Marley has a tutorial on how to cover up tin cans in a sweet way.

*****

Silhouettes of animals for making fabric "paintings". From Amy Butler Designs.

*****

Pippijoe has a tutorial for making a canvas basket on her blog.

*****

Want to make a felted brooch; just take out wool and a cookie cutter and a felting needle and off you go!

*****

Wonderful knitted bluebird from Berocco.

*****

Then there is the fullpacked Knitty.com, an online 4 issues a year knit magazine. Many, many great free patterns! From soft animals to clothing.

*****

This funny baby blanket can be found at Crochet Me.

*****

Burda Style is a great source of free sewing patterns. Instructions and patterns are downloadable for printing at home.

*****

There are 4 kinds of paper cut-outs on Scarabokkio's site. Just download the free pattern and color print it.

*****

3D letters or numbers in paper. Download templates. Lovely!

*****

Love this; a cardboard chandelier! From the Dutch magazine 101 woonideeën.

From the same magazine comes patterns for 5 sweet softies.

Explore more of the magazine 101 woonideeën's DIY projects.

*****

And I found some designers that sell do-it-yourself kits for clothing and softies.

Like Clothkits. They also have free help files to download, but you need to buy the fabric with patterns ready printed on. More patterns in their shop.

*****

And Egg Press and their sewable form of the monkey Magnus. Also check out their other goodies!

*****

I am in awe of all the talented designers and crafters selling and sharing their creations over the net! I get so inspired, hope you do too!
