What's Your Sewing Personality?

By: Kaylee Pope, Editor of

Discover your sewing personality and find a free sewing pattern you will adore!


Sewing is an art and anyone who says differently is just plain wrong. No matter what you like to sew or why you sew, you have a distinct sewing personality. Just like an artist we all have a style! Monet is different from DaVinci and Matisse is certainly nothing like Warhol! When it comes to making free sewing patterns, we all have our quirks and our preferences. Want to know what your sewing personality might be? Take our quiz. Just answer the following questions and we will tell you. Plus, there are patterns for sewing suggestions for each result of the What's Your Sewing Personality? below!
