Actually two free patterns to tell you about this week because not only did Chris forget last week but her fumble fingers priced the ‘free pattern’ at 50p instead of 0. However . . . all is put right now so you can download last week’s free pattern – Puss in the Corner – here and find out more here.
This week’s free pattern is Mum’s Wallpaper Strippy. Find out more and follow the link to download it on our sister site Meadowside Designs.
Over on our sister site Meadowside Designs today there is the ninth free pattern available – 9 weeks of isolation / lock-down / social-distancing / whatever. This week’s pattern is in our Payhip shop (one of many available as a free pattern during this period) and is called Which Way is Up?. It just seemed rather an apt pattern for these times!
There’s another free pattern today over on the Meadowside Designs site. This week it is brought to you via the magic that is EQ (Electric Quilt) and features a block from Beth Gutcheon’s The Perfect Patchwork Primer called Flying Clouds.
Head over to Meadowside to download the pattern to make a full size quilt and a quilt to colour as well as lots of ideas.
There’s another free pattern available over on the Meadowside Designs site today. A simple applique this time to make something small – a runner, a banner, a wall-hanging, or even a cushion. Chris made hers into a banner/wall-hanging.
The pattern first appeared as a Junior Project in Patchwork & Quilting Magazine back in 2007 and is easy to make with children, especially if you use fusible web for the applique. Children will also have fun adding their own embellishments and ideas to the original.
Another free pattern for you is available over on Meadowside Designs. This week it is a handy little bucket-style bag to keep your essential sewing kit in.
The pattern is available from our Meadowside Designs shop on Payhip and you can find out more and download it here. All the patterns in the shop have been reduced for this period of isolation and are either free or cost no more than £1.
You just need two fat quarters and with the left-overs you could make a matching pincushion, a free pattern for which can be found (along with several others) on the Meadowside Designs Free Patterns page.
Each week over on Meadowside Designs we are giving you a free pattern to download and play with. Last week we revisited the tessellating leaves pattern that we did at a Tittensor workshop some years ago. I altered the pattern a little this time around so it is slightly easier to make than this original version which is the front of a jacket.
This week is the tessellating pattern from the back of the same jacket.
Head over to the Meadowside site to download the patterns and for lots of other colour ideas.
Another free pattern for you over on Meadowside – this time it is a 9-patch quilt. The original quilt was made with a limited colour pattern but in keeping with our Scrappy Sundays theme you could use scraps as you will see from the post about it. Head over there now to download the pattern worksheet and a quilt to colour.
PS – All the patterns in the Meadowside Shop have been reduced – most are £1, some 50p and some are free!
