Default Can we start a list of links to free patterns?

I just got a sewing machine back and I'm itching for some new projects.

Maybe kids clothes, wallets/little bags, home decor, simple clothing, costumes, etc?

Anybody got some good ones?

Jen, I LOVE the circle skirt and the slippers. I might make a skirt for a swap one of these days.

Yay! I love tutorials and free stuff! Let me share my "sewing stuff" bookmarks with you!

Lots of purses and things

An adorable boy's cap (though I suppose it would be cute with some embellishments for a little girl too!)

Making a baby romper from a t-shirt

Freezer paper stenciling on fabric... so fun!!!

Tshirt dress.. I've made a million of these!

Adorable dishtowel apron for little ones

Cute fleece hats

Sock Monkey!

Adorable baby/kid kimono

This is a tute on TBW... but it's for training pants!

Ok that's it for now... fun thread!

Jen it's soooo easy! I made one for my niece this last April and it's her favorite thing to wear right now. It seemed intimidating at first, but really wasn't that hard. Just read though the comments at the end of the tutorial b/c there's some useful suggestions there - like pinning the circles together so your gathers end up even.

One of these days if we ever get some extra $$ I want to make a skirt for myself - but that'll be next spring more than likely.

for those that haven't - would you mind putting next to your link what the tutorial is for? I agree, this is the beginning of what could be a great sticky
