Tips for Downloadable Sewing Patterns

  1. Before checking out these printable sewing patterns, it's important to understand how to use downloadable sewing patterns. Obviously, most people don't have a printer at home capable of printing large pattern pieces like the patterns you purchase in the store.
  2. Technology is an awesome solution to save money, but if you use it wrong, your sewing projects can turn out less than impressive.
  3. The biggest tip for successfully sewing with printable sewing patterns is to follow the directions. Each pattern will tell you how to enlarge a pattern and to what degree in order to make it the correct size.
  4. You can do this by downloading a PDF and doing it yourself or—if you are uncomfortable or confused—you can easily visit a print shop or office supply store and have them do it for you.

need a pattern for a school uniform child's skirt pattern. Only problem is I need it today.

What an awesome collection. Thank you for sharing all these ideas!

I need longarm quilting patterns.

Oh, I appreciate this convenience of having downloadable patterns, I look forward to checking out all 30 designs. What I like about this concept is that we get to choose whether we want to print a pattern or not. That way we don't waste ink and paper printing extra patterns we won't use.

some free patterns http//

seems like such a waste of paper and sellotape, how about making a pattern such that you give the instructions for how to make the pattern, then anyone could make it easily on newspaper without a printer and with out even printer paper, but just using a ruler and a measuring tape. this is how patterns are made anyway to start with before they are copied onto pattenr paper. you make then out on card by copying instructions and you could easily make them to fit your exact measurements this way too.

If that's the way you want to draft your patterns there are several good books and other websites about the subject. But except for the few designs which are only basically made from rectangles such as a gathered skirt, it is not possible to just "give instructions" for drawing the crutch curve on trousers, or a neckline or a sleeve head. I agree that perhaps those curves could be the only bit you need to print off and the length of any straight lines could be shown, but don't forget websites of this sort need to cater for people with less skill and experience than you apparently have. You could always do a print preview and decide which pages you need to print and which you could guesstimate using common sense, such as the leg on a pair of trousers.

So many great patterns! And the fact that they're printable makes it so convenient. Thanks, AllFreeSewing!

nr 24 is no longer a free pattern

Where is the sewing machine shaped pincushion pattern

I'm looking for a pattern for fleece mittens. Can anyone direct me to a free fleece mitten pattern??

Hi MLPassi2 4980939 -- You can try typing the word "mitten" in the search bar at the top left part of the page. It's the little box with the magnifying glass icon next to it. Or you can follow this link to take a look at our selection of mittens. Hope that helps!

look at the end of your arms there are hands, copy your hands onto paper an d decide where you want them covered, like you could make half mittens, or where you want them up your arm, then add a hem and sew it would barely take a few moments and if they dont fit you can try again with an additional 1/4 or 1/8 inch around so they do. meanwhile give the paire that dont to a smaller person, and when you find the pattern that works for your hands you will always have perfeclty fitted mittens. you could do the same for gloves, just spread our your hands and add ahem sew around and if needs be pinch spaces on the writs to gather. thats how old fashioned gloves seem to fit so well.
