FREE Patterns and free Craftsy classes

I wanted to share today some of the great Free Patterns and Free Craft Training available online. You know I am a Craftsy fan, so I thought it would be useful to put together a list of links to all of the best of the FREE STUFF on Craftsy – and here it is….free patterns and free Craftsy classes.

(Note – since I wrote this post Craftsy has changed their leaderboard system to a Pinterest style system where you can see ALL the free patterns in one place.)

The FREE SEWING PATTERNS Board – the current top 20 most popular free sewing pattern downloads on Crafty.  From dresses, to tops, t-shirts, bags, accessories and more.  And I can see two of my own patterns on this leaderboard today – if you haven't downloaded them yet, go ahead and do it now and move me up the list  🙂  I'd love to be number 1 one day….

FREE CRAFTSY CLASSES – sewing, knitting, cooking, jewelry making, cakes, quilting and more. With professional and knowledgeable instructors, great lifetime access free video classes that will give you an idea of what the paid classes are like.  These mini-classes are a good way to get the basics in a subject before moving on.

I can personally very much recommend the Zippers Class, the Sewing Machine Feet and the Zipper Pouch.  I also signed up for the Pizza class but I'm almost afraid to watch it in case I make too many delicious Pizzas and my waistline expands!

As well as Craftsy, you might not have heard of Creative Bug.  They are similar in some ways, and cover similar subjects to Craftsy, but are a bit more artistic and creative and less technical.  Click the banner to go to their free content page and you can view their classes from there.

Where do I find a pattern of a pd belt ( for peritoneal dialysis)


How do I watch a class on craftsy


Great information! I love Craftsy! Thanks for coming by and partying with us. I hope that we’ll see you again next week.



I wish I could works with thread and fabric but, alas, that gene totally passed me by! Thanks for sharing your list at the party this week! I am featuring it on my Facebook page and have pinned it to the You’re Gonna Love It Tuesday board on Pinterest 🙂


Thanks so much for sharing this. I pinned the first dress pattern. LOVE it:)
