Free Skirt Patterns Posted on | January 6, 2013 | 17 Comments Five years ago, it was hard to find even one free skirt pat­tern on the in­ter­net. Now­a­days, doz­ens of free skirt pat­terns abound.

The Shirt Skirt July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana, I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. 70 Free Lingerie Sewing Patterns 70 Free Lingerie Sewing Patterns Posted on | November 12, 2009 | 12 Comments Free lingerie sewing patterns are hard to find on the internet. While free skirt patterns and tote patterns abound, free lingerie sewing patterns require sifting through hundreds of sites to locate. Here are 75 patterns that I was able to find.

sewing 101: making a pouf Add a burst of color to your room with this crafty pouf! At 17” wide and 10” deep, it’s large enough to serve as floor seating or a foot stool. (And if you have pets, I have a feeling they may want to make this their new favorite spot!) Sixteen Point Star Quilt Block Pattern Examine the Sixteen Point Star quilt block and you'll discover several ways to assemble its patchwork. We'll sew the star quilt pattern using a combination of squares combined with half square triangle units (HST) and quick pieced no waste flying geese, making assembly a breeze. Breaking down the components in that way makes it easy to play with fabrics. For example, maybe you would prefer to use more than one fabric for the star tips, or in the square that sits between each group of tips. My star tips are all a rosy pink... yours can differ. The quilt block finishes at 12" square.

Best Free Patterns & Dressmaking Websites ★ I’m just going to list the options you have for some important clothing parts here, plus information on different terms. I hope it’s useful. - Neckline options: Sweetheart, V-neck, square, scoop, U-neck, keyhole, bandeau, cowl, high-neck, halter, jewel, crew, asymmetrical, one-shouldered, off-the-shoulder or boat. Necklines sometimes are created with thin straps such as spaghetti straps rather than solid areas of fabric, or the clothing can even be strapless.

Umbrella Skirts Like designing your own styles to dress in but not skilled with complex stitching or comfortable with creating new patterns? From their shapes and size to their scale and appearance, skirts and umbrellas have a lot in common – except, perhaps, that when it comes to an umbrella the interior is designed to be seen publicly and thus is as carefully considered and crafted as the exterior … whereas, well, looking up a skirt … that might get you in trouble. But seriously: used umbrella material is a perfect choice in many regards to upcycle into a skirt, dress, other easily-planned piece of refab clothing, as designer Cecilia Felli discovered during her creative umbrella-to-skirt upcycling experiments.

A N D A M E N T O: Needle Felting OK, my new obsession is... ...needle felting. I expect many guessed from the little peek I showed in my previous post. If not, then today's post title will probably have given it away! Nested Churn Dash Churn dash fever has hit cyberspace so in celebration of the revival of this classic block I designed the nested churn dash. Start with a 4"x 4" block and progress to a 24" x 24" finished block. The beauty of this block is that you can stop at any layer to make a 4" x 4", 8" x 8", 16" x 16" or 24" x 24" block. Make a combination of all different sizes to make a fun quilt. I have made 9 - 24" x 24" blocks and will be making a simple quilt something like this using a combination of Bonnie and Camille April Showers and Happy Go Lucky by Moda. The PDF pattern can be found here.

★ Fun T-SHIRT Crafts! Recycling Taking your old, misshapen and worn t-shirts, or even ones you just don't like or wear anymore, and turning them into something that can be of use to you is not only fun and practical, it's also eco-friendly because you are recycling rather than throwing away. You also get something unique at the end without having spent much, or any, money. Another useful thing about t-shirt crafts is that the shirts already have been pre-washed and treated and have a shape which is something that can be used to your advantage - rather than it simply being a flat piece of fabric. There are different ways you can make use of what your t-shirt already provides:

Super Easy Paper Bag Waist Skirt Tutorial Yesterday I posted a tutorial for how to make what I think of as the classic paper bag skirt—pleats, belt, beltloops. Today, I want to show you the easier option, for those of you who don't want to mess with zippers and pleats. Here are some inspirations for this type of more playful, basic skirt with smaller, modified paper bag top: From Banana Republic: In a crazy cute print like this cute nautical look by Lilly Pulitzer: Or an even crazier print like this Marc by Marc Jacobs: Lots of options, although I still recommend a sturdy bottom-weight material.

Learn How To Sew A Rolled Hem A rolled hem is a very small hem made up of two folds. It can be really tricky to sew since each fold is teeny tiny. Many sewing machines have a rolled hem foot that curves and folds the fabric as you sew, but I find that way of sewing it to be very fussy and difficult to control. This is my personal preferred method for a rolled hem and I find it works perfectly every time.
