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!

  1. thanks for sharing these! the little girls bubble dress pattern appears to no longer be free ($8 on etsy) . . .

  2. 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.

  3. Hi all, I’m a beginner who is thinking about sewing, I want to get out there and purchase a sewing machine (not too expensive) but I am unsure of which type to buy since I have am a rookie, any suggestions?.Thanks again for the nice article.

    1. 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.

  4. Thanks for sharing! Having a quality pattern is very important when making a beautiful piece!

  5. Good Morning! Thank you for the links. I found that these two

    Two-Tone Blouse Pattern

    Super-Cute free printable sewing patterns from Burda Style

    go to the same place–Burda. Is this supposed to happen that way? Thanks again and have a great day.

  6. Thank you so much for featuring some of my patterns on your page. It’s very much appreciated. Some of the others were new to me too.

  7. What an excellent resource for us crafters! Thank you so much for all of the time you’ve so clearly put into your website. It is very appreciated!:) my only complaint is that you have too many wonderful things to look at and I can’t decide where to start! take care.

  8. 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. ☹️

    1. 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?

  9. I had no idea you could get patterns for free – I am behind the times! Will check these out, thanks!

  10. So many great patterns to try. Waiting for the day I get more time to sew uninterrupted! Visiting from Craftastic Mondays party.

  11. Just found your website–excited to find just what I need for church project–but nothing will come up but one item and it would not print–can you help?

  12. Thank you, once again. The timing of this blog is wonderful, once again. I just traded in a sewing machine that was incorrectly manufactured in Poland. I now have a Verve by Baby-lock. I am just getting ready to use it for the first time. The Verve is interesting because it is lightweight to take to possible classes with other sewers. If offers many stitches for sewing, a quilt table that attaches to the left, and embroidery in 4″x 4″ size. The machine has a mirror effect so that larger projects (quilts, fleece blankets) can hang off to the left of machine while sewing.

    I am at mid-life, and this is my new/old hobby, as I used to sew on an old Necchi (Italian made machine) in my teens. Thanks again for helping me get motivated into sewing again.

  13. wonderful ideas but just a warning the site for the 25 womens dresses and stuff doesnt work. There is no longer a site.

      1. You are so very welcome! And thank you for all the hard work you do providing us with awesome ideas we can add to our lives!

  15. The example for the green texture bushel, which the image shows above holding diverse shading textures inside, when I went to get the free example, they are attempting to charge me one dollar for the example. I figured you should know.

  17. Hi Merissa,

    I love your emails and website. I read your emails daily and always find something useful. I’ve been a housewife for 53 years and I’m still learning. You are the only blog that I read daily.

    I also own your model of the Brother Sewing machine. I adore it and know there is not a better machine out there for that price. Your sponsors always give great products and value.

    Thank you for all that you give.

  18. Do you have a pattern for a storage bag with multiiple pockets that could hang on the back of a flat seatback and hold items like a small handbag or cleaning supplies or small trash bags. I drive school bus and am looking for something to put on a seat back that would give me a bit more storage.
