Free Simple Sewing Patterns

Don't have enough projects to keep you busy or maybe you need some new projects to work on in the evenings? We've created a new list of a bunch of free simple sewing patterns for you to scan through!

Patterns seem to be going up and up in price all of the time at the store and it hardly makes it worth it to pay for the pattern, pay for the fabric, and take the time to make the project. But if you can find the pattern for free for what you are looking to make you save about half the cost of the project. Here's a list of free sewing patterns for women, baby & kids, home decor, and other accessories. Which of these projects do you think you will make first?

Awesome list Merissa, thanks so much for putting this together for us. Makes it so easy to find your top choices all in one place.

This is a great list! i am going to try the Maxi skirt first

You are “SEW” right. With all the free patterns out there, why buy one? Thank you for sharing you list. You’ve only scraped the surface. I might add, you’d better save the pattern files or webpage to your computer. Sometimes the sights go missing.

Thanks for the list! I’m going through all the links for ladies dresses. So far I’m really liking the Easy Wrap Dress. I need a dress for a wedding, and it looks like I might be able to wear that one and still be able to nurse the baby. 🙂


5 Merissa June 3, 2014 at 7:54 am

That one is so cute isn’t it? I want to make one when I get some time one of these days!


6 Cynthia L June 3, 2014 at 8:10 am

What a great list. I love sewing and as you said, it is more and more expensive to do. Thanks for all of the patterns!


7 Annie June 3, 2014 at 8:42 pm

12 Alicia Owen June 6, 2014 at 1:37 pm

I would love to get better at sewing. It doesn’t help that every time I try our sewing machine decides to get jammed and just be a pain in the butt in general. Maybe my mom will let me use hers when we move. lol Thanks for sharing at the Pintastic Pinteresting Party. 🙂


13 Heather @ My Overflowing Cup June 6, 2014 at 2:43 pm

What a great resource – thanks so much for sharing it! I would like to make the Maxi skirt. I’m pinning this for sure. Thanks, again.

I’ve been using cloth pads and panty liners for around 2 years and would never go back to store bought. They’re not only more comfortable but also saves a lot of money plus saves on the amount of trash that fills up junkyards/landfills. Whenever mine start to lose absorbency due to age, wear & tear, etc., I plan to just ad another layer and cover to them. I like the fact I can decide what length/width I want or need. Never put them in the dryer, I have a lil hanging rack with tiny plastic clothespins hooked on it to dry mine discretely.


15 Joy @ Yesterfood June 6, 2014 at 4:48 pm

Merissa, these are some great lists! Thanks for putting these together- I’m so glad you shared them with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned!! 🙂

The patterns can be inexpensive if you shop at JoAnn’s and use the coupon’s you get in the mail to buy the patterns that are on sale. However, the fabric is ridiculously expensive. Even the fabric that is on clearance is still quite expensive. I am not that great of a sewer myself, so I just make little ‘crafty’ things with the fabric scraps that my Grandma gives me(she is a quilter) and use patterns I find on Pinterest. If the fabric and the patterns weren’t so bloody expensive, I would probably become a better sewer and make more stuff. It is a shame, really, because back in the day, woman were able to afford some fabric and patterns on any budget and now it is the complete opposite. Thanks for posting these though. These are really great resources. Have a great weekend 🙂

I agree that the price of fabric is really expensive at the fabric stores. I do shop second hand stores for fabric remnants, though. I wanted to do some embroidered towels for Christmas. At two different second hand stores, I found the perfect cotton fabric. I got several yards at each place for just a couple dollars. Now I have enough to make lots of them for practically nothing each. Fabric for things like the market tote or cosmetics bag is easy to find, too. And if your lucky maybe even something for a blouse or skirt. Check it out. It’s totally worth a few minutes to check there first.


18 Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes June 8, 2014 at 1:52 pm

Great list! Thanks for sharing at Freedom Fridays.


19 Kristina & Millie June 8, 2014 at 9:28 pm

Awesome list! If you haven’t, I hope you will stop by our blog and link yourself to our “Share your Talent” directory.

great website but I have a question, I work at Walmart and we just got our fabric back after not having for several years. I am looking for simple ideas to show to beginning crafters and experienced crafters both and would like to display some of your ideas. I am not talking about giving out your patterns but I would like to be able to tell people where I got the ideas. Do I have your permission to do this?


24 Merissa September 16, 2014 at 5:04 pm

Of course! You can simply refer them to site and tell them to search for free sewing patterns. We have a lot listed here that would be helpful. 🙂


25 Joan November 5, 2014 at 2:34 pm

Omg THANK YOU! These are beautiful patterns.


26 Renee November 30, 2014 at 12:43 am

Thanks for the list! Can’t wait to try out a bunch of new baby patterns!


27 Ashley @ December 8, 2014 at 12:35 am

Thank you so much for all of these! I am going to try the maxi skirt one first. I’ve recently found that I LOVE maxi skirts lol. Just stopping by to let you know that your post will be featured in tonight’s linkup! Pinned 🙂

Great! Thanks for these… dying to get back into sewing



29 Rebecca January 25, 2016 at 10:28 am

Wow, what a great list of patterns. Thanks so very much. And you are right, patterns have gotten so pricey that I never buy them unless they are on sale. I pinned this post for later and will use a lot !!!!


30 Long Ladies January 27, 2016 at 11:34 am

What an amazing list! How generous of you to provide these patterns, and for free! Thank you so much!


31 Diane | An Extraordinary Day January 28, 2016 at 9:28 pm
