Free sewing patterns and tutorials

If you've got fabric yardage crawling out from under your bed waiting to trip innocent passers by, it might be time to use some up. (Possibly that's just me.) These DIY bag and clothing projects might put some of that surplus to good use!

Backgammon skirt by Ellen Luckett Baker at I'm Feelin' Crafty
Half apron with jumbo pockets from Sew 4 Home
Little Grey Dress at Un Petit Design (plus FAQ here)

You are not the only one! I have more fabric than ideas of what to do with them.

Jessica Jones said...

I have more fabric than the energy and desire it takes to sew things. :)

Nina said...

Definitely not just you! This whole using it up idea might have something to it...

Grandma G said...

Sewing doesn't really take a lot of energy, Jess. Gumption, yes, but not energy. ;) And most of your fabric seems to be under MY bed!!

Funny how it keeps migrating over there... But you'd still be surprised at all the stuff under my bed!

Love love love that chevron bag! I really need to sew some bags ... but I need to sew my wedding dress more!

It's so awesome that people like you are sharing your knowledge about free sewing patterns and tutorials. I'm one of those girls who isn't crafty at all, but I'm petite and I hate spending so much time searching for clothes that fit me and are also a style that I like, so I'm getting more interested in at least trying. Thanks for the info!
