I can’t possibly list all the free patterns out there, so I try to select only the best of them. If you go to the home page of any of patterns that I have listed there will often be a link to free projects. That’s how I find many of the patterns I list. If you can’t find what you need, try these sites. A lot of the patterns I have on my site came from them.

If the pattern is no longer available on the web, sometimes www.achive.org has them saved on their site. If so, I will link to them via archive. I mark those patterns as archived . During peak times, these pages may be slower to load. If too many people are using archive at one time, the site may not load at all. Archive may ask you to try again later. If for some reason, the pattern site has been deleted from archive, it will say ‘not in archive’.
Newest patterns are after dates in red .
Some hate PDF files so I marked those with PDF . PDF pages tend to be slower to load, and can hang up your computer, if really slow. If this goes on too long and you can’t close the window, or hit stop (to stop it from loading), go into task manager and end the process (firefox, explorer, or netscape). This will probably close all your windows, boo hoo. So if you have windows that you don’t want closed, try to be patient and wait for the file to load.
Since web sites come and go with the wind, save the website to your own computer by right clicking on it and clicking on ‘save as’ and save it in someplace like, ‘my sewing stuff’ (you would have to create a folder called ‘my sewing stuff’ in a place like ‘my documents’ first), so you know where it is. If a web site dies so do all the images. If saving the page does not save the images, save the images and pattern pieces, to your computer as well. Some pattern instructions contain many pages. Save those pages as well. When accessing the saved pattern page, you might see ‘next’ or ‘page 2’ type of thing. Clicking on this, will try to access the on-line web page. The message ‘page not found’ will display. If you see this message, Look for page 2 on your computer. Instead of storing the pattern and instructions on your computer, it might be easier to just just print the pattern and instructions. I am not trying to confuse you but I probably have.
Need help downloading or making a pattern.
None of these patterns are mine, I just link to them. If you need help putting any of them together or wish to thank the owner of the pattern, look for an e-mail button on the site that the pattern exists. I do not open up new windows (implying outside links) because it can be a real pain to close them all. To avoid hitting the back button all the time, right click on the link, then ‘open in a new window’. Since I do not open new windows, you may want to bookmark this page if you don’t want to loose it.
Until I fix the dead link. you can try entering the dead link into www.archive.org
ARCHIVE saves websites from the past for historical purposes. Cool huh? TOP
