December can be a really expensive and busy month, so every year we take some time to slow down in January, and then focus on getting back into the swing of sewing with some amazing FREE patterns!

Most of our 30+ designer partners offer at least one free pattern - any many of these are quite quick, easy, and satisfying makes.

We have listed them all for you below in a handy list that is updated frequently - there should be no dead links here (unlike many of the free pattern lists going around on Pinterest!), but if you do find one please let us know and we will fix it right away.

We have made notes on each pattern in this list to let you know how to get it free - some of them can be downloaded directly from the link provided, some require free codes from their Facebook groups, and others are sent to you when you sign up for their newsletter.

The patterns are divided into the following sections - Accessories for All Ages, Adult Clothing & Accessories, Children's Clothing & Accessories, Bags & Home Items, and Decor & Toys

We host an annual Free Pattern sewing challenge in February (Free Pattern February) with prizes - want to make sure you don't miss it? Sign up for our newsletter!
