Some of my favorite how-tos: felt bag, oven mitt, and travel tissue cozy
Cool patterns for free: Anna Top, Jocelyn Dress, and Marie Skirt
I was browsing around Belinda’s site, sewseamless.com (lots of good info for beginners like me), when I followed a link and to another site called BurdaStyle and was surprised to find that it has pattern pdfs you can download for FREE! It also includes nice sections on how-tos, inspiration, and other resources. Many of the patterns and techniques are somewhat advanced, but it was fun to look around and see the possibilities, especially where members would “alter” a pattern to make their own design. Does anyone know of other sites like this where cool/modern patterns can be downloaded for free?
Postscript: I don’t know if they are from the same parent company, but there is another site called Burdamode.com which also lists some free patterns. The only one I really like is for the Tiered Skirt. Also, Kathy from Pink Chalk Studio recently provided a great link in the comment section to Creative Kismet’s tutorial roundup.
