Free Sewing Patterns by Category - Plus Free Crocheting Patterns and Free Sewing Patterns Crochet Patterns Knitting Patterns Sewing Patterns Cross Stitch Patterns Quilt Patterns Yarn Stores Search for: in: Free Sewing Patterns by category (over 2,600 free patterns!): Mini Screens and Clothing Labels (A Tutorial I’m so excited to launch a small trunk show line this coming spring for my tiny clothing line….but phew, SO much work. My biggest concern with branching out from my online store was that I had to come up with a way to better label my clothing so it meets FTC requirements. I don’t like putting any type of tag in Lil Blue Boo clothing for comfort reasons (Boo is pretty sensitive to anything with tags)…..so I came up with an easy way to silk screen all the information using little handmade “mini” screens: I found these little $1.00 wood photo frames at my local craft store and knew right away that they would make the perfect little screens. I purchased about 20 frames and I ordered a pack screen printing fabric sheets.Step 1: I cut the screen printing fabric large enough that it would wrap just around the edges of the frame.Step 2: I used binder clips to stretch the fabric as tight as I could across two sides of the screen. Then added 2 more clips on the other sides.

Sandpaper Printed T-shirt Kids Craft Jul14 by Cindy Hopper This is a super simple sandpaper printing technique that will keep your kids busy and make one cute shirt! The best part about this fun little craft is that the supplies were bought at the Dollar Store, even the T-shirt! We used crayons we already had so we only spent $2.00 on our new T-shirt. Supplies for Sandpaper Prints Easy DIY Lace Sleeve Tank Top Fashion Years ago I used to make little lingerie/pajama sets of tanks and underwear with ruffles – you can see some of them here, along with a DIY for the ruffle boy shorts & bikinis… but I always used ribbed wife-beater style tank tops rather than spaghetti strap tanks. I’ve had this pretty vintage lace trim I found at a thrift shop lying around for ages. I pulled the $3 tag off just the other day as I was prepping for this DIY. I thought it would really be pretty with this blush tank and I love the turnout. This is a very simple DIY. What You’ll Need…

DIY Transparent Clutch Phil Oh spotted this elegant Charlotte Olympia Pandora clutch during Paris Fashion Week and we spotted a DIY. Prada, Chanel & Fendi seem to be seeing clearly too because let’s face it, nothing says “I ain’t got shit to hide” like a transparent clutch. You’ll start by drilling a hole at the top of the plastic box. Use a drill bit that is one size larger than the diameter of the bolt on the knob, otherwise the plastic might crack. Open the lid and slowly drill a hole in the center of the box with very light pressure. Please wear protective eyewear and use caution!

beltmaking 101 Finally–the long-awaited beltmaking tutorial! way I make my fabric-covered belts has been learned from a mix of trial-and-error and vintage manuals. The supplies are simple, and making a simple pass-through belt is quite easy. I have, however, included instructions for how to add a pronged buckle to a belt and add eyelets. How To: Woven Cuff Bracelet I’ve been looking into more and different kinds of knotting for bracelets lately, and I found this pattern that works nicely for a cool cuff bracelet. I used paracord (utility cord originally used for parachutes, now widely used for other applications) and a brass button for closure. The paracord is relatively thick, which makes this bracelet more of a cuff. I found a video tutorial for this pattern on YouTube from a guy who calls himself “Tying It All Together.”

Reconstructed Clothing Roundup: 5 Ways to Revamp a T-shirt I have that classic womanly problem of a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. Ever feel like everything you own is just kind of... meh? Never fear, there is still hope for your tired wardrobe! There is a solution, and it's called reconstructed clothing. You can tear apart and remake virtually any clothing item to give it an entirely new look. One of the most popular things to refashion is an ol' standby, the t-shirt.

Oversized Cropped Tank or Vest DIY Fashion What you’ll need. . . * NOTE: as you wear it the edges will curl a little …which actually makes it look better for a cropped look, pull it back more or cut the center shorter * NOTE #2: instead of ribbon you can cut strips out of the left over t-shirt, shoe laces, lace, anything! Voila! See how I wore it by clicking the links below… DIY Crop Vest with Jeans | DIY Cop Top with Tropical Skirt DIY Bleach Tie Dye Last summer, we were obsessed with shibori indigo tie dying. No, really . . . we just about dyed anything white in sight. So when Free People asked us to include a DIY in their guest blogger series, we knew a new tie dye project was absolutely in order. And as the weather is beginning to warm up, what better time than now to start experimenting with reverse tie dye using bleach! Black tees and tops: watch out! To make a grid-like pattern, fold the shirt like an accordion and bind it between two pieces of wood or other flat shaped objects.
