Free Printable Sewing Patterns

One of the best ways to cut household costs is by sewing your own clothes, bags, and toys.  However, if you have to pay a lot for patterns, some of those savings go down the drain! Thankfully, there are lots of  fun and FREE printable sewing patterns available  to use.

Plus, when you sew your own items, you know your items will be durable and beautifully customized to your tastes. Check out these free printable sewing patterns and see what fits your personality.


I have a Brother CS6000i sewing machine for all of my sewing projects and I just love it! It's served me well for several years now without an issue. My favorite feature is that you don't need to use a foot pedal with the machine, you can simply push the little button on the front, adjust the speed, and away you go! Perfect for those (like me) with a little bit of a lead foot when it comes to a sewing machine!

Another great place to look for patterns and not spend a lot is thrift stores and garage sales.

Thank you so much for sharing this information! I went to Butterick’s site and found a free wrap dress pattern! Downloading and printing a pattern is a new experience for me.

I have a very simple Brother sewing machine that I really love! It’s easy to use (not too many settings and buttons) but still gets the job done for anything that I need.

Hi I just came across your site and thought t was a great idea. So I started to click on your links and they’re not working. ☹️


20 Merissa March 30, 2016 at 7:01 am

Hi Stephanie, I tried the links this morning and only the Butterick links seem to not be working for me so I’ve removed them. Could you tell me which other links you are having trouble with?


21 Gina May 3, 2016 at 10:41 am
