Free Sewing Patterns for Beginners


Thousands of sewing patterns are available on the Internet, but it can be tricky to find free sewing patterns for beginners.

I decided to have an in-depth look over at, part of a group of websites that offer free patterns for most crafts.

First Impressions

You’ll be prompted to join when you do a search and try to download the pattern. It’s easy to find the type of pattern you are looking for as the navigation is well laid out.

As you can see, It’s easy to find the kind of pattern you’re looking for and there’s a section with free quilt patterns for beginners.

Joining Up

After filling in these details, you are taken to the next screen. You are asked if you want to subscribe to the Sewing World magazine.

There’s no such thing as a free lunch, but it’s easy enough to check the box that says “no thanks” box. If you are interested they are offering a free magazine without any obligation to buy more.

Before you get your activation email there is one more step, optional subscriptions to Annies Craft store newsletters. then you finally get the prompt to go check you email for the activation link!

Once downloaded the patterns can be printed or saved, hover your mouse to the bottom right and the selection window appears. The skill level is shown on all the patterns. On the first page, you are again invited to participate in something, online classes in Annies Store.

There are step by step instructions clearly laid out with accompanying diagrams to help. This pattern is simple, and ideal for beginning sewers. Made with the very forgiving plush fabric it would make an ideal gift. You could also make my plush baby toy to match
